Kona on Wind Tower on a hot mid-June day. Lougheed (Peak 1) and Sparrowhawk behind. Kona’s “dad” climbed this Lougheed Peak via the pictured NW ridge in 1982 after taking a rock-climbing course with Lac Des Arcs. Part of Lougheed Peak 2 is jutting out behind Peak 1, an easy but long scramble. Below, view of Spray Lakes and Mt. Nestor on way up.
