Ascent Trip Report

This trip was an exploratory trip to hike up through Taylor Meadows and then up to Pamorama Ridge. A trail was followed all the way to the top. We werein heavy fog at the top andcould not see a thing. From here we went off trail and down in elevation to the col between Genitian Peak and Panorama. We wanted to continue up to Genitian and then on to POlemonium Ridge and done to the SPhinx GLacier and the cabin.

WE could not see to do this so we followed the drainage line from the col down to Garibaldi Lake once at the lake we followed the shore line to Sphinx Bay on the lake and we found Sphinx Cabin. We spent ttwo nights here exploring the area, climbing Genitian PEak andPolemonium.. We took the ridge route back to Panorama and down to the meadows. We covered alot of grround on this trip.
