Ascent of Spa Mountain on 2017-09-01
|Date:||Friday, September 1, 2017|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||Canada-British Columbia|
| Elevation:||5925 ft / 1805 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom NE, Salmon Arm, drove in via Fly Hill FSR (good gravel) and China Valley (rough, ok in RAV4). Final 2km (from NW) needed higher clearance, so I hiked, No 3 trail. Route via Fly Hill then Wallensteen Lake is probably good gravel all the way to gate, then 300m to summit.
"Soccer ball" comms tower at summit, securely fenced; however highest point is rock outcrop either S or N of compound, both about same elevation.
After yesterday's Dunn Peak ascent, working on a few easy P1000m summits on my way back to Calgary for flight home.
