Kona on Read’s Tower in mid-June, view towards Sparrowhawk summit in clouds. Visibility and icy conditions turned us back from Sparrowhawk at 70 m below summit (pic below), so this (and the breakfast burrito) is the ‘consolation prize’ for the day’s effort.
Too cold, icy and foggy to continue to Sparrowhawk summit.
Returning from upper slopes of Mt. Sparrowhawk to below Read’s Tower.
Otto (5 yrs) and Fletcher (3 yrs) on Read’s Tower. Summit of Sparrowhawk in clouds behind.
Kona on Middle Sister in early June. Little Sister (Hope), Wind Ridge and Pigeon Mountain behind.
View towards Wind Tower, Rimwall Summit, Mt. Lougheed peaks 1 and 2, Mt. Sparrowhawk, and beer cooling in snow.
View to adjoining ridge with Ship’s Prow and Mt. Lawrence Grassi.
Quick descent down snow slopes. French and Robertson glaciers left of 3,406 m Mt. Sir Douglas, Mt. Birdwood, Mt. Nestor and Old Goat Mtn. on skyline. The Orphan (alternate approach) above the scree slopes.
Kona enjoying the snow.
