One-Way Difficult Start at: Wedge Pond https://www.summitpost.org/the-wedge/154228 The Wedge is a distinctive peak located in Kananaskis Country, Kananaskis Provincial Park of the southern Canadian Rockies. It is located close to Kananaskis Highway (40) between the Fisher and Opal mountain ranges. Its official name is descriptive of the mountain as its summit is shaped like a carpenter’s wedge. The Wedge should not to be confused with Wedge Mountain located in the Crowsnest River Valley. The Wedge offers a variety of steep technical routes on its west side. The published scramble route utilizes the northwest ridge and face. This is not a remarkable scramble, but does give up decent ridge views.
