Default Exodus Peak 02 May 2015

BCMC hike, 6 of us; Andrzej, Michelle, Craig, Alastair, Vlad, Brian.

It's a long drive up the Elaho to E600 Where we met up with the overnight campers, stopped off at Maude Frickert Falls on the way.

Lot of waterbars on E600 had to take it slow and needed to clear rocks in places, bottomed out a couple of times, took about an hour to where we parked.

Headed East, up thru the trees didn't take too long to hit snow, once out of the trees showshoes were needed, one minor bluff to ascend, we chose various routes steep and a little icy in places, crampons were needed here,

soon we were on the edge of the Glacier, great views to the west on Tinniswood Albert and Casement, roped up and headed across in two groups, took a good half hour i'm guessing to cross.Off the ropes we head upwards for the final push to the summit area. Wind picked up on top, quite chilly, still it moved the clouds around and provided great lighting for the photos, spent a bit of time trying to figure out which peak was which. Little ring was clearly visible to the East.

We dropped the packs by the transmitter thing and wandered over to the true summit slightly higher by a meter or two.

A very satisfying trip. 11 hours in all, coming down the snow had softened considerably had to keep the snowshoes on, still went thru in places, down thru the forest was slippy and tiring with the heavier packs.

I think it's the E300 for Blanca, it would be too far from where we started.
