2011-10-22 | Mt. Burke, Cameron Lookout (Kananaskis AB) | 2555m | 14.8 km | 992 gain.

Hike with First High River Venture group. My part of the agenda was some map / compass / gps / routefinding instructing but the weather at the top certainly didn't lend itself very well to peak spotting. Crazy weather, but not unexpected.

Good trip all up. Two boys didn't summit (stopped +- ten minutes short) but many had not been in such condtions before and the weather didn't help. Some short glissades on the way down were fun and we managed to start and finish on time. Win!
