FA- Dominion Survey via West Slopes
Mt.Hardisty is easily seen as a long low-rising orange rocky peak just north of Mt.Kerkeslin, or about 6km north of Athabasca Falls. It is a very easy scramble, but can be a bit knee-jarring over the terrain up the slope in spots.
Park as for Horseshoe Lake and follow it around the north side, or park along the road north of the parking area, drop down to the lake and follow it around the northern side then find the easiest looking way through the lower reaches of the peak in order to gain the upper slope. Hike up this long slightly angled route to the summit Return the same way.
