Weather forecasting is a subtle art in the mountains; often it is incorrect. While the forecast for this day called for 10-15mm of precipitation, with the chance of a thunderstorm in the late afternoon, it turned out to be quite wonderful. After a morning of work in the studio, I decided to make the quick drive to Canmore for the quick ascent of Heart Mountain. I was pleasantly surprised with this route. It begins with views almost immediately along the ridge, some good scrambling along open slabs, one quick moderately technical move through a rockband, and a gorgeous ridge walk to two higher summits, before completing the loop back to the car down an adjacent ridge. What more could you ask for?
