Easy/Moderate Scramble - Door Jamb & Loader Peak

This will be a shorter scramble as I will be celebrating the night before and have to be back in Calgary at a reasonable time Saturday.

I will be meeting people out at the trail head at 10:15 am and not in Calgary for this event, people coming from Calgary will have to coordinate their own carpool from Brentwood.  People coming from Calgary should meet at 9:00 am.

 

Rating: Easy/Moderate Scramble
Distance: 9 km
Elevation gain: 750 m
Time: 4 hrs

Our pace will be moderate/fast, this is not for people who prefer to go at a slow pace. Please be realistic about your abilities
