There's a decent, flagged use trail most of the way to Quartzite Col, making this a pretty pleasant hike other than getting down its east side. The peak is so-so, but the Clearwater Pass area is spectacular. I got a thorough soaking on the way back over the col, for a cold ending to an otherwise-pleasant day. Trip report.
One of the most beautiful places I have been. Sleeping under the sky at Devon lake with no one else around us it was fantastic. route is easy and quick with a short dificulte section close to the summit.
Went in with Cameron, but his knee bothered him, so a solo ascent day and he got a head start out. I wrote a trip report (http://www.summitpost.org/mount-willingdon/808679) because I was a bit perplexed about the approach based on the material I read before hand. On exit, it only took me 4hrs+ from camp to car, so it is quite direct once you have it wired. Beautiful area. A boat on Devon Lake!!! no kidding....curious if anyone can tell me how it got there.
Fun to push as a day trip. Hot weather, fun times with Pierre Descoteaux.
