  • Approach

    From Troll Falls parking lot bike roughly 4km along the cut-line and then scramble up through trees and steep slope to the base of the route. You can also ford the Kananaskis River but this can be extra difficult during periods of high waters.

  • Descent

    From the summit, descend the N. ridge heading toward the prominent scree gully on the SE side of the mountain. Then gain the cut-line and retrace your approach steps.
