Default Ipsoot 27-May-2016

Just over 15km down Ruthford FSR to branch 550, it's quite overgrown at the start, if you go pass it your soon come to a bridge.
Followed 550 to it's end then headed up thru the cut block, trending to our left we soon found alder but were able to go up and around most of it. Easier bushwacking, soon we hit snow and came out of the trees, up the snow slope we took a short break to decide the route to take, we decided to take the slope to our right (south).
Contoured around the rock to get on the snowfield, had to drop down slightly, we could see down the valley and across to Sootip. Still 1 1/2 km to the peak across the snow.



Sootip from the logging road.



The way ahead. Straight up the snow, then we decided to climb up the ridge on the right.

Gaining the ridge.



A flat spot on the ridge, took a break here, still more elevation to gain.



Sisqa Appa area in the background.



Short drop down as we contour around.






Over this rise and just the icefield to cross.



Rhododendron area in the background.



On the final leg to the summit.






Windy on the summit, but it cleared up nicely.


Some butt sliding opportunities on the way back.
