What, you didn't feel like running around the lake and bagging Sphinx and Table while you were up there? []

Wow Simon and Chris, that is as good a collection of images as I've seen from a single day trip in quite some time. Almost looks as if some of those scenes were painted.

Bravo..!

The downclimb. The tricky spot is just above the snow.

There is a ramp line to the left (south) of this, mostly out of the photo, that offers an easier line of descent to the col.

3100m in one day is kick ass. Good job you guys.

Snow is melting fast. I ran in from the Cheakamus side last week and there was a lot more snow.

Dru, the start of it looks visible in the shot. What I went down did have a faint dust track to start.

Here's a shot of Phyllis Engine and Mt. Carr from the notch area.



Spunky, those MacDonald's fries after a long hike taste pretty good.

NS Explorer, I'm happy to break the 10,000 foot elevation gain barrier in one day, though it's not something I'd want to try on a regular basis.

Great work, you guys, and super pictures too. I am impressed and envious. You must have almost jumped into the notch with the line you took, Simon. Cheers, Rick
