I love this mountain, only for the fact that its broad, mostly treeless slopes provide enduring views of remarkable scenery. The Wilson group, Lizard Head, and the Ice Lake peaks (Vermilion, Beattie, and Fuller) all stand out from the slopes of Black Face.
Started up the Cross Mountain Trail and then on the Lizard Head Trail, where we crossed this mountain and to Lizard Head Pass, where we had stashed a car. Thought this was only a 5 mile hike and turned out it was over 10 miles. Great views!
