Completed this one August 20, 2016 some of the best 360 degree views in all of Alberta. The way up is quite the grind but well worth it! the We descended skiiers left of reads ridge on the way down and met up with the Sparrowhawk Tarns trail eventually, although I would not reccomend this route personally. All in all a great hike with some light scrambling and also a 10,240 foot summit is something to be proud of I'll definitely be back! :)

My third time back to the Spray Lake Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada, but I was even more impressed by the views than the very impressive first two times !!!

Here's a link to a very good description of the route.
