Nihahi Ridge South Summit
After an exhausting scramble up Pilot
Mountain the previous day, I managed to drag my body out for another
hike on 10 August 2002. Ken Laing, Stephanie Stotz-Laing, Kelly Wood
and I hiked up Nihahi Ridge near the Little Elbow Campground in Kananaskis
Country. On several previous occasions, I had only ever hiked up
to the first broad saddle. While Ken, Stephanie and Kelly were content
to stop for lunch after the first rock step past the saddle, I continued
on to the south summit to have a look at the rest of the ridge stretching
away to the north. I hope to return at some future date to traverse
the entire ridge.
Ken, Kelly and Stephanie hike toward
the first rock step.
