Course Content: Cascade Mountain is the spectacular peak that towers over Banff. The scrambling route ascends the west side of the mountain, hidden from view. It is a long day but not technical - the main difficulty is route finding and energy conservation. The summit views and feelings of accomplishment climbing a big mountain close to home are well worth the effort!

No previous experience is necessary but reasonable fitness is required. An "Introduction to Scrambling course is being held on August 1.

Required Items to Bring:
Hiking boots
Gloves (min 1 pair lightweight)
Appropriate clothing for the weather (lightweight pants are better than shorts)
Rain gear
Sun gear
Personal First Aid/blister kit
Hiking pole
Bear spray (optional but preferable)
Backpack to carry everything for the day (clothes, equipment, food, water) - min 30L
