Route climbed Hotlum-Bolam Ridge.  Sucess!

Great weather the whole time we were on the mountain. From the Northgate TH we went up the Hotlum-Bolam Ridge route to the summit. Was able to celebrate my 34th birthday with my dad on the summit. An amazing experience.

Beast!!  Sucess!

Summitted in 3 hours 56 minutes from Bunny Flat. Had a hard time on the ascent with no crampons or axe. Wore just shorts, a t-shirt, a day pack with 2L of water, ankle socks and low cut north face hiking boots. Was under-prepared if I was looking for comfort. The soft dirt and pebbles filled my shoes many times. Descended in 2 hours 19 minutes. Total hike time: 6 hours 15 minutes Total mileage 11.7 miles

If At First You Don't Succeed...  Sucess!

I tried to summit in May with skis but had to turn around when the snow was getting too soft. I didn't drag those things all the way up there to ski crappy snow. This time around I left the skis behind and made the summit no problem. A little under 5 hours from Helen Lake. Summited with my cousin Cory. Found very few other people on the mountain but met a couple of very cool people on the summit. Well worth the effort!
