Mount Tecumseh
On 22 September 2001, Stan Benedek, Dan Millar, Kelly Wood and I drove up the rough road to Phillipps Pass to scramble up Mount Tecumseh in the Crowsnest Pass area.  We started up an obvious water-worn gully which, being steep and smooth in a few places, required us to make brief detours onto the adjacent banks.  Higher up near a house-sized rock, Kelly decided to stop because she was not feeling well.  The rest of us continued on to the upper scree basin, and from there, we grinded our way up to the summit ridge.  We soon reached the 2547-metre summit and spent about an hour there.  On our descent, we rejoined Kelly in the gully and returned to our car without incident.
Rock of Ages!

Almost there!

The end of a great weekend!
