I will be going up Grotto using the ACC route. This route starts at the Alpine Club of Canada clubhouse and stays to the left of the large gully. The ACC route allows us to bag the false summit and traverse the ridge to the main summit. We will return the same way. This will be a 5 to 8 hour day not including driving. This is really no more than a challenging hike but it is rated as an easy S5. Not recommended for anyone with less than intermediate skills. There is no real exposure but the ridge top may seem airy to some. Rock Helmets are required for this trip.
Gas Fees are $15 per passenger for this hike
