Mount Fable, Kananaskis Country.

Escapando el finde was this past weekend and after a big snow storm in Mount Fable, trying to reach the top, but was impossible.

Escapando el finde was with Ali, Jody and Jeff hiking this not too common scramble. This is a nice and really long hike because it takes more than 10 hours round trip. We have lot of snow and because of that we could not scramble the final slab cover with more than 15cm. The views from the top are beautiful.

We did the easy route following the creek north from Lac de Arc during 6km and then turning nortwest for another 3k and finally to scramble the southwest face to the peak. There are two other routes but you will need rope and harness to save a 5.5 step.

Elevation gain 1350 meters
Difficulty: moderate-high, but not technical.
Distance 20km aprox
Location: Exshaw Creek, near Lac de Arc, Kananaskis Country Lac des Arc.

Here the track of the day. SUUNTO TRACK

Mount Fairview

Escapando el finde was this past weekend in Lake Louise, Banff National Park.

The weather was perfect during the two days so after one climbing the next we decided to do the Mount Fairview. Escapando el finde was with Evelina, Eli, Rafa, Dana and Alba camping in Lake Louise campground, excellent place to stay.

We the Mount Fairview hike, starts from the parking lodge of Lake Louise. It is  hard because you gain 1000m in just 5km, so is short and steep. The name of the peak is great because after the effort you will have magnificent views of Mount Temple and Mount Victoria with their glaciers. On the way back, take is easy because is a scramble with some scree sections and could be pretty crowded.
