Fun ridge climbing with a bit of exposure. I only wished that the ridge scrambling would've been longer.
Extended quality ridge scrambling, lots of variety. Too much smoke in the air to enjoy what should be great views, especially of the Assiniboine region.
good fun ridge walking/scrambling, crappy descent. Hazy skies in the afternoon possibly from forest fires in BC so not a great view from summit.
Had a partner from Australia this day. These June snow conditions, as reflected on the main page, are extremely unusual. However, from the summit, I could tell it only got worse further east. Mount Bogart looked in full winter condition. The entire front range has far more snow and ice than I have ever witnessed in June.
I do enjoy these wintry like conditions on scrambles as they serve as solid preparation for more technical summer alpine climbs. I can imagine however that certain routes and mountains, particularly Assiniboine, might make for challenging climbing if conditions do not improve.
