It's the most politically incorrect peak name around, but Squaw's Tit is a truly iconic Bow valley summit. It's visible from pretty much anywhere in Canmore, and is begging to be ascended. I've been up here before, and the ascent route is always different. There is a veritable spider's web of intermingled trails ascending the steep scree slopes above the Montane traverse, but once above treelike, keep going up. As the steepness abates, the rock and the exposure increase, but the scrambling is moderate. When the nipple approaches, keep to it's left side, for it's tempting to angle across to the right, and that leads to some scary terrain. The ascent is easier than it looks from below, and the summit view is magnificent.
