Ascent Trip Report1h up, 40mins down. From SW, ski resort, hiked service road to lake/reservoir, kept L along shore then steeply up (YDS2, signs of a use trail) to join S ridge trail shortly before summit, shapely cairn. Descended E ridge, trail which descends easy gully to join a hiking trail just before dam, then we headed back down the service road.
Resort is closed (at end of Aug at a guess), with No Hiking sign, but being British we applied Scottish access principles :-) Chair lift (Bullet Express) happened to be running as there was a wedding on! But not taking fare paying passengers, and good to walk. Apparently fare about 15CAD. Caught by a little rain on way down.
