It is an August day, great weather with the trail head at Illecillewaet Camp ground and an easy old railway grade then with a left turn you will past the foundation ruins of the Glacier town site and then take an acute right turn to a steep switch back 2.2 klm stretch uphill for 425 metres gain to Marion lake. Trail eases off a wee bit after the lake for 4.6 Klm and a continual elevation gain of 655 metres. (short cut route steep to weather station and often used when snow slides cover main trail.) Weather station hut 150 meters below ridge and approximately 1 Klm from trail end. Trail finding and scramble possible further along ridge to summit. Incline rate 5.1 to Marion Lake and 6.9 averaged from the from lake onward.
