|Welcome to Powell River|
|That is a long drive....|
The next day we loaded up onto the final ferry and made our way.

Eventually I popped above the treeline, finally reaching the base of the actual summit climb.
I was unsure the best route, as the main face looked prone to avalanches, so I wandered around a bit, before finally settling on heading towards a corniced ridge off the main face.

A fun little trip, one of these days I need to spend more time in Powell River, but in the summer, so I can better explore the excellent alpine terrain, and the many rock climbing opportunities!
