The `Kootenay Ridge', as Geologist John Allan called it in 1947, is a heavenly ridge walk where it's possible to pick off four tops named, even further back in time, `the Pocaterra Peaks'. Scrambling is optional (the ridge is mostly grass), exposure is nil and you can escape from almost anywhere in the event of a thunderstorm. It is, though, a strenuous flog. Hike it in combination with #111 to make a loop. With two cars you can make it a one-way trip to Highwood Pass, also using #111.
