One of the most scenic hikes to date. Everything from a lush forest to pristine lakes, glaciers and numerous giant waterfalls, The bridge is out so do not follow the old route. Cross over the 4-5 rivers at the inlet of Peyto Lake and stay along the right hand side. We went in early Sept and the biggest set of rivers was just over 20 ft wide, and the deepest it was was just past my knees. Be prepared for extreme frigid water though, as it is pure glacier melt. Your feet and legs will sting. Once you reach the end of the inlet you will see a path that will take you along the river bed to the original location that will take you up the ridge. Basically just follow my route. The path above the waterfalls is short and fun but walk with extreme caution. One slip and you're a fatality. Caldron lake is absolutely incredible and it will be in your sights all the way to the peak, as will all the numerous glaciers and waterfalls. The hike and scramble took us a total of 9.5 hours, but that also included 30 minutes on top and 30 minutes for lunch.
