Ascent Trip Report

Second time ascending this, as part of the overall traverse of 'La Centennaire'.
Beautiful day, dry conditions in the lower half, fresh snow and occasional ice flows on trail higher up. Without crampons, some sections were kind of difficult, forcing me to get off trail and bushwhack around those sections.
I met a few people but only one other hiker who was going the whole traverse.
Total time of the hike was 4.5 hrs, with 1 hr 20 minutes for the initial ascent of the main summit itself.
