Ascent Trip ReportA group of us started at Winstanley Island, kayaked across and took the SW ridge above Winstanley Creek to reach the alpine. Once over Peak 3779 we pushed on southeastward above Winstanley Lake to reach Winstanley Point the next day. Then we worked back spending our last night at the Winstanley Lake shelter. Moving in the constant white-out of low cloud cover, steady rain, and cold temps (high 40's) sure makes travel on ridgetops challenging and amazingly rewarding at the same time.
