Kananaskis Country (South), AB
Not to be confused with the (more popular, but equally small) Saddle Mountain in Lake Louise, this one is outside the southern boundary of Kananaskis Country in the Livingstone Range. Raff and I did it as the 3rd peak of Livingstone Range traverse. The first two peaks are Mount Hornecker and Windy Peak.
To get there from Windy/Saddle col was as easy as one can expect, though the wind was giving us challenging. We basically chatted all the way up, and we made to its top before realizing we were there. I immediately focused on the slightly lower, south summit. Getting to the second peak requires some boulder hopping in strong wind.
And after grabbing both peaks, I headed down to Saddle/Livingstone col and regrouped with Raff, and we would be going up the last summit of this day soon.
