This scramble is described by Kane as possibly the best in the area surrounding Field in Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies. I must agree. The well-graded forested approach, and solid rock made it feel like alpine climbing in the Selkirks, and the summit view was so comprehensive you could actually see the Selkirks! Despite elevation gain in the order of 1700 metres, the maintained trail to Hamilton Lake makes for a fast and relatively painless approach. The worst part is getting from Hamilton Lake onto the ridge. Once on top of the ridge crest, the scrambling is phenomenal. A small tricky section requires some route finding in the uppermost part of the summit block, but overall the way up was obvious. Highly recommended!
