Ascent Trip Report

Revisit (new for Pete) on a fresh sunny early morning, lovely alpine meadows, nice light; clearer views than last year. Forest road improved since last time, parked where the McLellans did, up by their route (GPS track), down similar. I.e continued straight up forest road, at level tarned area climbed open ground to join trail contouring at 2120m, which continues to summit. Trig marker by summit lookout is BC Water Resources 650. 1h30 up, 2h45 round trip including a few mins at summit. Best blue/huckleberries of the trip so far!
