The first of two scrambles today (heading off to Mt. Baldy in Kananaskis in the afternoon) and it proved to be quite a nice trek. As described in many places the trail up until the ruins of the 'tea house' is pretty well defined with only a few patches of boulders where the trail momentarily vanishes. There are even signs up at some places along the route just in case of any confusion. The 'tea house' itself should really be either resurrected or dismantled as currently it is filled with graffiti and refuse both of which spoil the environment! Once gaining the summit ridge there is a short bit that is more difficult but should present no difficulties so long as you have shoes with good grip and no lingering snow. The view from the summit in morning light is quite lovely.
