Ascent Trip Report

All of the usual passes to get from Cottonwood Lakes up to the plateau south of Langley were heavily corniced. The weather was also very warm, so we didn't want to take any chances. We tried to make our own route up onto the plateau using the first east trending ridge that extends into the basin south of Langley. This was a bad idea - the route wasn't even close to suitable for our level of skill.
