Scrambling Routes
An easy ascent via north scree slopes. Skoki Mountain is a quick little ascent right behind Skoki Lodge. This diminutive mountain has been ascended by some nine different routes by Edwin Knox, a former employee of historic Skoki Lodge. It is not a complex peak. The most common way follows an old logging road, now a wide swath, hacked into dense forest. Try from July on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 252
