Time Required: Most of a day
Difficulty: moderate


Starting from the first switchback after the bridge on the Fortress Ski Area access road, head into the bush at 180ยบ (directly south). After crossing a fairly obvious drainage, continue in a more south western direction until you find a second drainage higher up. Do NOT follow the first drainage up. Head up (west) the second drainage.

Once you find the right drainage, head up the gully until you get above the treeline, and then follow the ridge that goes straight up a bit to the left. Follow this all the way to the summit.
