PhotoDescr: Redcap Mountain is at the edge of the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies. Walking its ridgeline gives great views of the foothills and the Rockies. The distant bump on the skyline on the left side is the Bighorn Range, nearly 40 kilometers away. The nearer peaks on the right are part of the Nikanassin Range. The Cardinal River valley lies between Redcap and the nearer peaks.

This view shows the steeper northeast side of Redcap, with its cliffs and scree slopes of very loose rock.
