Mount Lady MacDonald

Where: Canadian Rockies
When: July 2009
Partners: Solo

False summit from the true summit

Heading out solo on day #4 of 6 straight days without a rest, I decided to kick things up a notch and move. Dow'd mentioned that Mount Lady MacDonald, which features 4,300 feet of elevation gain and a class 4 summit knife edge ridge that few people actually cross, was a local classic. I started out running, and returned to the car 3:15 later. An exhilarating effort that felt great.
