The weather had been threatening to unleash it’s power, at least that was the forecast for Saturday afternoon. I suggested we climb Ha Ling and Robert was game. We met at 6:00am on main street, by 6:20 we were in high gear on the approach to beat the crowds, and the weather. Little was I to know that Robert is a machine!
After a 35 minute lung busting approach, we geared up and blitzed to the summit. At 9:45am we were sitting on the summit enjoying the views of Canmore, having a conversation with a couple of recreational climbers that followed our tails the whole way up.
I think that was the fastest ascent of the peak I’ve ever done with a guest. It was also nice to be on top first as we counted 88 hikers on the way down. What a great climb, thanks Robert!
