The 5th day in a roll of snowshoeing trip, I was looking for a short and relaxing ascent. Marko was planning on Little Lawson Peak and that would be an ideal objective for a relaxing day. So I met Marko, Amelie and 4 others at trailhead in the morning. Following Matt's GPS track, it was hard to get lost. We almost went up wrong ridge though but that was because we didn't pay attention..
Once on the ridge, the ascent was fairly steep. You probably want big teeth on your snowshoes or you would have trouble catching up your partners. It was surprisingly dry in Kananaskis and the snow was just deep enough for snowshoeing. You could do this trip without snowshoes but the big teeth definitely help on the way up. We went up at a not-so-fast pace. The weather was way worse than forecasted, and we didn't get good view throughout the day. We didn't stop at the false summit, and the final push to the summit wasn't bad. A little narrow for a few meters. Other than that, it's a walk up frozen scree. But if you don't have scramble experience, you would feel it a bit dicey..
On the way down, I took off snowshoes so I could plunge-step and glide a bit. My knee would hurt if I kept snowshoes on. I felt hard to slow down on the descent especially on snow covered terrain, so I went down on my own pace and drove back home early. Overall, a good day out, and a perfect finish for the 5-day snowshoeing trip. Succeed on every single peak attempted.
