The day before Martin and I did the NF route on Joffre, we did Warrior and Cordonnier, great weather for the entire trip.
Day trip with couchclimber. Slogged over burning moraine rubble, crossed the tiny remnant icefield, then climbed more hot debris to a windless, smoky summit. It's no wonder the glaciers are melting!
Tried this as a day trip on a very hot day, felt like +30 even at the summit. I thought Mt. Rundle sucked but this scramble/hike is even worse. At least we got a good view of Mt. Northover that we did last weekend as a day trip too. It was my first time seeing a mountain goat as well so it wasn't a total waste of a day.
Excellent day. Not much room on the summit and it was windy. Cheers William
