Perfect solo day. Blue skies and lots of sun. A fair amount of snow on the last push to the summit though.
Started off very cloudy and raining. At Sentinel Pass the wind picked up and it began pouring. We decided to press on (the only group in sight). Made it to about 400 meters from the top when it started hailing and the winds were very strong. Toughed it out for as long as we could but it was just too brutal and we decided to turn back.
Last minute climb on our last day in the area. Fun way to end an amazing climbing trip, fun scramble, loose stuff but for the area not so bad. Perfect weather!
Nice scramble- I had flashbacks of a hike of sentinel pass with my dad when I was like 7. Cardiac Arrete beckons!
The loose rock of the Canadian Rockies were leaving me pretty demoralized, but this route was a nice surprise!
A great scramble and intro to CA Rockies summits.
