Scrambling Routes
Difficult scrambling with exposure; routefinding required. Mount Storelk is the next summit south of Mount Tyrwhitt on the long ridge known as the Elk Range. As of 1998, this peak had seen very few ascents despite ready access from the road. The suggested route involves sections of steep, exposed scrambling and your routefinding ability will largely dictate just how much fun or fear you'll experience. On a clear day, the summit view of Elk and Kananaskis lakes areas is magnificent. In autumn, when larches flaunt their golden splendour, this outing is a fine getaway from crowds at Mounts Rae and Tyrwhitt. Dry conditions are required for this ascent; try from July on.Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 178
