Description

Located between Gold Creek and Pitt Lake in the middle of the complicated Golden Ears massif. This peak is both bushy and rocky. It may have been climbed in 1876 by S. Edge and one companion. The normal route is via the Golden Ears trail that starts at Gold Creek. Before reaching the summit of Golden Ears, traverse south along its east flank to the col with Edge Peak. Scramble along the connecting ridge to reach the summit. The technical difficulty is anywhere from Class 3 to Class 5 depending on your exact route selection. (Description courtesy of bivouac.com)
