Until today. I'm in Canmore and I slept late (felt soooo good!!), and between that and the bear closures around the area and the poopy weather forecast, I chose to stick close to home. About five years ago, Todd and I climbed the standard route up the north face of Ha Ling Peak, and we walked off via a trail down the backside. All I remember about it is that the views from the top were quite nice... so even though I already have a rock from the peak, I decided to check it out a second time.
Then I toured over to Miner's Peak, which was way less crowded but equally as scenic. I met a local gentleman who was scoping out some ski lines below Lawrence Grassi Peak, and then I sat and ate my lunch in the glorious sunshine.
