South to Bow Peak. The view shows the ascent route and
 approach hike all the way down to the Icefields Parkway.
Kane's ascent route suggests hiking up scree to gain the
south ridge but I used the rocky outcrop, observing the
practice of "ascending on rock, descending on scree."

Alan Kane's "Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies" and a complete
set of  Gem Trek maps give the peakbagger all the information
needed for a trip to the Canadian Rockies.
