SG, I was on Irek's Eaton Peak trip with you last year. On Saturday, we did the North Peak, otherwise known as Grant Peak (proposed by Beckey) or Crescent Peak (Fairley). Did you manage to get out to that one as well? Nicely done!
Eaton Peak North turned out much better than anticipated. The routefinding made it interesting. We found a nice snow gully which we used to avoid all of the bluffs and bush for the last 2,000 vertical feet to the peak. No rain, but a little graupel on the summit. We had reasonable views all things considered. It was an 8 1/2 hour trip. Still feeling it today!
