Ascent Trip Report

Ash and I parked on the last road near the mountain (in Exshaw). We had to make a new trail all the way up but the way is obvious. We followed the ridge mostly and stayed clear of any small rock walls, all of which can be accessed in multiple spots. We had some knee deep snow at some sections, but overall the way up was fine. The views of surrounding peaks is quite nice at times. There is a summit registry and we had lunch at the top. Quick descent.
