Ascent Trip Report

The trailhead is about 8km north of Rossland on route 3B. Follow the Plewman trail all the way to the ridge (Jct1) then go a short distance southwest and take the summit trail (Jct2). The trail is good and well maintained all the way to the old lookout building on top. My time of ascent is bit slow and younger hikers should be able to do it a lot faster. 9/19 RLC
