Ascent Trip Report

Class 3-.

A big and remote peak. Not in regards to elevation but the effort to get up it. Even from Red Deer Lakes CG it is 22 km’s with 1600 metres elevation gain. The views are magnificent and the fresh snow and cold wind gave the climb a wintery alpine feel. The scramble itself is okay. There was a lot of big rocks to step on, around and over. Lots of fresh snow added to the difficulty of walking on the boulders. Higher up on the summit block, drifts were up to our thighs. Drummond required quite the effort, but we did it. 12 hours round trip from camp. Best done as a three day trip.
