Gr571003 An un-named peak over the ridge from Picklejar Lakes. Start at Lantern Creek day Use Area. See link for Picklejar Lakes http://willski.ca/picklejar-lakes/ We crossed towards the scree gulleys on the left after the first lake. The choice was not good and doing this again we would look at the last gully right, which we came down as the way up. The gully down had some great soft heal sliding scree. So going up could be difficult if you cannot keep off the moving stuff. At the top of the ridge the view opens up to Peak GR571003 a big open cirque. A little loss of 40 m elevation before the slog up to the summit 400 m . Some fresh snow had fallen, yes it’s August but no smoke today so big bonus. Nice views from the Peak but still a little hazy from smoke and low cloud. Note for the Ramblers Club this is rated an Off Trail hike 4 more like a Scramble 5. Thanks John D. for the lead.
Distance return 14.6 km Time return 7 hrs ( inc 30 min lunch ) Elevation Accumulated gain 1350 m Elevation to Summit 1055 m Summit height 2805 m
