    Excellent trip! Challenging - steady all the way up; Colorful - beautiful flowers and transition to fall colors; Impressive - the higher we hiked the more we were amazed by the views; Rewarding - scramble up and conquering the summit after a bold ridge. Thank you Stephane for choosing this scramble, organizing the trip, finding the gully and for 'ordering' superb weather. I am happy that I joined you.

      It should be a scrambling helmet, you can rent a helmet at Calgary University or at Mec.
