Malcolm and I had tried to bag it a few years ago, but were weathered off.
So, with a good weather forecast, we loaded up the boat and headed up Kusawa to give it a whirl, but this time to do it in a day, so that we didn't have to hump heavy packs up the miserable approach.
|Getting into the alpine.|
|Following gully's make for the easiest way to access the plateau.|
|Porsild makes its first appearance.|
|We stayed right on the talus ridge, and thence to the summit via the snow fields.|
|Thunderstorms and rain threatened all the way to the top.|
|The sky cleared giving us some great views into the coast ranges.|
|Someone put some work into the summit cairn.|
|A fast and easy descent.|
|Ski descent anyone?|
|A very cool little north face on it.|
|A last glimpse. 12 hours round trip with ~12000 feet of |
elevation gain and loss made it feel like a fairly full day.
|Loaded up and heading home.|
