Steep 1150 metre climb of 6 Km to the high point of the ridge at 2510 metres. Starting at Two O'Clock campground (behind outhouse near the newly numbered campsite #4) the trail starts by crossing Two O'Clock Creek (named for high water warning at Two O'Clock) and gradually ascends a flower laden escarpment before an unrelenting climb. Great views of Tuff Puff to the left and colourful ranges to the right, but you must continue straight up to a well deserved double cairn lunch stop!

Directions:

The campground entrance is 22 km west of the Banff National Park boundary on Highway 11, or 61 km east of Nordegg.

Comment Lot of tempting side trails. Where do they lead? The woods were great. Very different than my top of the mountain treeless trek the previous day. Only took about 2 hours to get to the summit though so I kept going peak to peak to peak. Even in the rain. Wet but not miserable I made it quite a ways to quite a high summit. Hard to see anything in the rain and cloud! Which was cool. 7.5 hour total.
