Ascent Trip Report

A light fog filled the air. As we veered our canoe port side, our new southerly direction gave us a spectacular view of this white quartzite mountain. This was to be our first real ascent. Five kilometres by canoe took us to the trail that would enable us to ascend this mountain. This would mark the true beginning of our thrill mountain ascents. From the peak we could see to the NW Sudbury's smoke stack, to the South Georgian Bay and to the SW Manitoulin Island. We ended up camping at Silver Lake later that day on our back from the peak.
