The promontory overlooking the forks of Upper Kananaskis River is one of the very best vantage points in the park, discovered back in 1916 by the Boundary Survey who set up a camera station called Lyautey N on the point. Getting there requires careful routefinding over rough and complicated terrain, a challenge to anyone who's just completed Map Reading Level 1. If you've the energy it can be combined with the ridge section of #102. Bring binoculars.
