Trip details on an official peak west of Okotoks: Two days after Mist Mountain the mountains had received a dump of snow. Dave and I drove out to Highwood Pass to give Odlum Ridge a shot but unfortunately wind and rain got the better of us…at the car already. We decided to turn around and then played with the idea of doing Hells Ridge but we were also not motivated for that one, it looked cold and miserable. I then suggested this mountain and since this had been on Dave his to-do list for some time we decided to go for it. So far we have not been able to find any trip reports on this particular peak so would this be a FRA? The ascent is somewhat straight forward and really quick but there is a reason why nobody this this peak…it was a good workout, decent views but beautiful fall colors.
