Hawkins Horseshoe July 6th 2014

Locating the hidden gully is the key to an easier ascent on Blakiston. Staying right while aiming at the rightmost peak on the seemingly impossible walls will bring you to the correct gully. The remaining route is mostly a straightforward hike.

Dry on ridge but deep snow just off the ridge. Looked like you could ski at least half way down from summit on May Long Weekend.

Scrambling Window Mtn Allison Peak Mt Ward

GPX route for the Window Mountain, Allison Peak, Mt Ward traverse. Note that the final portion of the route is a 600m+ bushwack which can be avoided with a longer walk either closer to Window Mtn or down Window Mountain Lake access road (add ~2.5km).
