Took a SUP across Buttle, no problem stashing for two nights. Camped at the lake downhill from emergency cabin. Second day summited the Spire & Mt McBride, more of a scramble than trail. Heavy fog made finding the shute back to Marble Meadows more difficult. Highlight was seeing my first Vancouver Island marmot.

127 switchbacks from Buttle Lake to Marble Meadows. If you’re ready for that, you’ll find unbelievable beauty atop. Marblerock Lake is particularly stunning from the ridge line above; be sure not to miss that. In three days, we came upon only seven people. I think the lake crossing keeps most people away. It’s great if you want to escape humanity, less desirable if you take comfort in having other hikers nearby.

Great trip in early September. There was a lot of snow still on the mountain. We Hiked up to the plaque with out 5 year old then setup a base camp to explore to nearby peaks and the Wheaton hut.
