Ascent Trip Report

Parked car at picnic parking lot at Cameron Lake. Took trail from there up to old Mt Arrowsmith Ski Area parking lot. We then climbed up the old ski run which takes you about two thirds of that slope to the summit. It is then a scramble to the summit where there are several telecommunication cones. The view of Arrowsmith is spectacular from here. We went down the west face of Cokely and over the saddle to Arrowsmith. We climbed the first hump but our time was running out so we had to turn around at that point.
