5.10 Guide Almighty's are a great shoe for scrambling but if you wear them around town, will be worn out in under 6 months. Pavement and sticky rubber together result in a quick death.

I recommend this trip to all hikers and scramblers,once you're on the rock it's super grippy,not too much exposure.The 5.10 shoes are the way to go I have a couple of pairs. One for free ride mountain biking and another lighter pair for multi pitch climbing in Squamish and any other scramble type approaches.

I always like seeing trip reports on these 2 mountains, because of how good the rock is.

That rock looks a lot like the south peak of the Old Settler. Dru?

It's pretty close to the same thing, they are both ultramafic, but one is dunite (Twin Sisters) and one isn't (Old Settler)

Same rock occurs on Sunshine Mountain and a couple other places in the Cadwallader Range. There's a beautiful boulderfield of the stuff east of Sunshine in a tributary of Crazy Creek just waiting for the highball pad people to show up for some hard problems.
