Ridges of Rundle # 6254

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.

Vantage Point: From East End of Rundle

Caption: Looking northwest along some of the many ridges extending out to the buttresses on Rundle's northeast side

PhotoDescr: During a beautiful stay in Canmore, we were looking to get in a hike/scramble in the area. Flipping through Alan Kane's Scrambles book, the East End of Rundle sounded like a good choice--basically just hiking, with a bit of extra goodness (and lots of Rockies scree) near the top. Not to mention nowhere near the crowds of people we saw trudging up Ha Ling Peak across the road. We ended up seeing only two other hikers the whole time we were out on EEOR. As is typical when the weather is decent, the views were outstanding from the top, mountains everywhere. We could see the layering that makes up Rundle quite well in places, and the ridges extending out to the buttresses that line the northeast side of the mountain were quite impressive. Rundle's main summit is the high peak in the left third of the picture. The northwest end of the Fairholme Range can be faintly seen at the right edge of the photo. Apparently the entire length of Rundle (12 km or so) has been traversed both in winter and summer.
