The crux of the day is finding the right logging road to access the trailhead. Rough road for 8 km makes the start of the steep hike. A short steep hike takes one to a beautiful sub-alpine valley and onto a steep col. Great scenery once above tree line. Mostly an easy slog to the summit, with one or two hands on and exposed scramble section just below the pointed summit. We had limited views, but did get a sneak a peek at the impressive Mt. Washburn, high on my list now.
Good choice for a day of very unstable weather. Great to bag this beautiful little peak, fun day out with Steven S.
Ever since I moved to Kimberley, Mount Fisher has been calling to me every time I looked east! A sunny and hot Saturday at the end of June provided the opportunity to head up this landmark of the east Kootenays. It is a great day to be spent. A beautiful hike through forest, by streams, a waterfall, and tarns followed by some interesting scrambling with incredible views of the surrounding area. It was awesome... a must do in the Kootenays!
