Scrambling Routes
Easy. Although Panorama Ridge is not a singularly impressive summit, by proximity it offers a terrific view of the north face of Mount Quadra, east face of Temple and an unrestricted panorama of the Bow Valley. It is an easy ascent and the only crux is crossing Babel Creek without wetting your feet. Try from mid-June on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 240
