Bow Yoho traverse and des Poilus Date Climbed: Feb 12, 2012
Feb. 11 to 12 completed a modified Bow - Yoho traverse with an ascent of Mont des Poilus with TJ and JW. We started at Bow Lake, crossed the wapta and camped at the base of des Poilus, 7 hrs car to camp. Sunday, we awoke to heavy snow and strong winds. Missed out on views, but our run back to camp (about 500m vertical) had awesome snow conditions; we were 3 hours camp to summit return. Headed out via Waterfall Valley to Takakkaw Falls. From the bivy site out we were about 8 hours; 5 hours camp to Takakkaw Falls via Waterfall Valley and Marpole Lake and about 2.5 hours Takakkaw Falls to car. Awesome trip!!!
