|Date:||Sunday, October 17, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||Canada-British Columbia|
| Elevation:||1819 m / 5968 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportDrove to old Mt Arrowsmith ski base. Headed up old ski runs to the top of Mt. Cokely. Great view of Mt Arrowsmith from there. Headed down the west face and over the saddle to the first hump. Good scrambling on the hump faces with some exposure on them. After the third hump we geared up. Using rope and harnesses we headed up the nose. It is alot less intimidating up close, although there is a thousand feet of exposure here. We noticed two bolted sites on the way up. We used these to come down. Possible without ropes but highly suggest ropes. It would be easy to slip on a wet day.
