Nice hike. Trip report
My favorite summit of the previous year was a Canadian Ultra (Silvertip Mountain). This year, my favorite summit was another Canadian Ultra (Birkenhead Peak).
This was nearly a full mountaineering experience, minus any roped climbing. The standard approach has several gnarly sections which require extra attention to footing and surroundings. Spectacular views from the summit. Highly recommended summit destination, although further north than I had ever previously traveled for a peak.
