Golden Ears West Canyon trail to Alouette and Viewpoint?
When looking at my GPS, I noticed that the West Canyon trail branches off to Edge Peak, Blanshard, Alouette and then optionally Evans peak and meets back up with the West Canyon trail via Viewpoint. Has anyone gone this route before? Is it substantially more difficult than West Canyon? It seems shorter in length than taking West Canyon all the way back if you're camping at Panorama Ridge. I tried to summit this last weekend with the plan to check out that route but was turned away by snow, so wondering if anyone else has experience with it. Seems like it would be a pretty epic return, hitting five different peaks in a day.
