IMPORTANT - Read:

To reach the summit we will go through the crux...a small section where you have to walk on a narrow ledge (roughly 50 feet or so). But there is a cable to guide you along the section which proves especially useful for those who have a bit of a fear of heights! This will not be a point of decision...your decision is made when you RSVP. Chain Section on the Yamnuska Traverse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT2Bv4fu0H0)

After our hike we'll head for a dip in the Banff Hot Springs, so bring a swimsuit and towel.
