|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||Canada-British Columbia|
| Elevation:||8222 ft / 2506 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe went up the skiers’ route (up towards the glacier from Blackwater Lake - enter woods at 4th switchback) because Microwave Ridge sucks. A bit of bushwacking / open forest off-trail hiking but you get to the alpine pretty quick and straight forward. Lots of devils club in the open spaces in the woods so will be very difficult to do once summer comes around and it blooms. Glacier is smooth. No crevasse considerations for us today.
