2008-03-14 Kananaskis Peak

A scramble up to the peak at GR338442 and a traverse to Kananaskis Peak. The weather was really amazing considering the forecast called for 5-10 cm of snow. The bushwhacking was horrible and the often waist deep crusty snow made for a very slow trip up.

    In dry conditions, would you consider this drainage to be a good ascent route up Kananaskis Peak?I've been twice both Wasootch Peak and GR338442 so I wouldn't want to do repeats of the route. Cheers,Adi

      I'm sure you could, but I don't know that it would be a preferable route to Wasootch or GR338442. Personally I would take the well establish Wasootch Peak trail, that way you're not bushwhacking, you've got nice views on the way up and an interesting traverse.
