Traverse from Scout Patrol Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2012
From Hansen Creek Trailhead went up to bag Scout Patrol after a failed snowshoe attempt earlier in the year. It was very easy with no snow. From there crossed over the summit and down to traverse between Scout Patrol and Bearscout.
The rout was pretty easy until the last 3/4 mile which gains about 800 feet. No views on this day but still a nice summit.
When getting off route we had quite a bit of bush whacking and steep scrambling up the East face. Eastking wanted to turn around but we were at the "Point of No Returns" which we had to finish the route to get back to a easier way down. There were also a lot of mosquitoes and devils club on the way down.
We went slightly off route from Scout Lake and paid dearly. I lost my glasses here. after looking 5 minutes through the thick vegetation Josh and realized it was not only pointless but downright dangeous and continued to the summit in order to find a better route down.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
