Drive the Silver-Skagit road from 1.8 (3km) miles W of Hope, B.C., south 37.5 miles (60.3km) to the border crossing on the E shore of Ross Lake. Look for the Trail of the Obelisks near the border that climbs up and along the boundary.The Trail of the Obelisks will take you up onto a marshy bench at 1,820 feet (555m) and join the logged swath that follows the 49th Parallel up the mountainside. Don't expect too much of the trail; for most of the ascent you'll be picking your way up through forest. The route takes advantage of the border swath, but does not follow it consistently. At about 4,000 feet (1220m) bear right and follow a small creek valley (no water) to a pass just below 6,400 feet (1950m).
Step into the broad, open basin NE of the peak and soak up the views. Head straight for the peak and the chain of permanent snowfields and rock bands that take you to the top.
Descend: continued N until hit border monuments, then turned W and descended toward Ross Lake. |
