Questions: 1) Please describe your recent scrambling experience and speed? 2) Can you drive and take others (how many)? Please answer all questions.

Please note that an early start is required for this to find parking and escape from the crowds around Lake Moraine. Eiffel Peak is a great scramble with breathtaking views, which are even better when the larches have turned yellow. We will have excellent views of the larch valley. We will also be back on time in Calgary, so you'll have time to run errands (or get some more sleep!).

Distance: Around 11km total
Elevation gain: Around 1200m
