I recently scrambled up both ends of Mount Rundle for a video project I am working on. I began with the east end of Rundle (EEOR) on July 23rd, and then the true summit on July 27th. A wicked storm came in quickly while I was on EEOR, however I managed to make it safely to tree line before the sky opened up. While heading back down from Rundle’s main summit later in the week, I ran into a few scary groups wearing jeans and t-shirts, street shoes, not carrying water, and asking if they were on the right route to the summit. For those of you thinking about heading up Rundle, bring lots of water and appropriate gear for the outing. Pick up Parks Canada’s pamphlet ‘A Scrambler’s Guide to Mount Rundle’ from the Banff visitor centre before heading out, and play safe.
