Ascent Trip Report

day trip from Lethbridge, Alberta with a very early start. We parked at the Rowe Lakes trailhead and took the trail up to Lineham Ridge. From there we followed the ridge and walked up to the summit of Hawkins, encountering a bit of sleet. After that we headed towards Blakiston with significant up and down. A tough walk up to Blakiston's summit. We returned the same way (Hawkins horseshoe) making it a very long day but satisfying.
