Ascent Trip Report

Trail in good shape up to Harvey Pass. Braided trails, some looser than others, up to the summit. Just a little hazy, but great cloud-free views of all the surrounding mountains and valleys. Easiest good view of Mt Assiniboine to the south.

Started alone, met up with Eric from Portland, OR at Bourgeau Lake. Joined Pam from Guelph, ONT, her fiance Cassidy and her friend Nicole, also from Ontario, at Harvey Pass. Pam is friends with Christina and the group I climbed Mt Temple with just 2 days earlier. How cool is that!
