Mount Indefatigable

On Friday I picked Jessica up at the Banff Centre with the intent of returning that evening to Blairmore.  Her final critiques lasted longer than anticipated, so we ended up spending the night in Banff and hiking in Kananaskis on Saturday.  Indefatigable was a pleasant outing, albeit not private.  We passed as many as 60 people on the way up, and a few more on the ridge joining the South and North peaks.  The one surprise was the degree of exposure on that ridge; it was a little more airy than Jessica would have cared for, but she managed again not to fall off of the mountain due to vertigo.
