BackpackingRocky

took me 3 hours to get out of the woods with a heavy day bag then 2 and a half to the top with a few breaks. quite windy lots of loose rock might be to much shale to bring dogs to the summit. still in great shape with no snow there is a few places to camp. and for last part of the main summit, I would reccommend Rock climbing harness with gear and a hundred foot rope for safety as there is a decent amount of exposure.

Hiking

Awesome hike!! A slow and steady incline makes it easy to set a good pace. I'd say this hike is intermediate... until you get to the loose rock and shale. The last 2k is a GRIND. but so worth it! shout out to the dudes drinking homemade brandy at the top and an ice cold beer.

I regret to not going to this second peak just 100 m from the first peak. It was so close.

Trail is gorgeous, took us about 4hrs with packs to the lake and by that point our lovely day turned to snow. (Forgot to stop the recording so got an extra few hours of moving around camp in there.) Didn't make the peak - inshaAllah we will be back to knock it off as a day hike. Never underestimate the weather out here! :D

BackpackingGreat!RockyScramble

We did this trail on sept.12. Trail was well marked and well maintained. It took us around 3.5 hours to the camp with lots of breaks. It was still smoky at the top so the view wasn’t as great but still could see mountains close by. There is a stream before you get to the alpine. Definitely fill up water there. There is a small lake at camp but no water run off. So you would have to boil water. We backpacked, so we hiked to the camp, spent the night and woke up the next morning to do the summit. It took us about an hour to get to the summit from the camp and about 45 min to come down from the summit. It’s very rocky for the last 1/2 of the summit. Very doable without equipment but might be difficult for a dog. It took us about 2hr 45 min to hike down from the camp at a comfortable pace. This was my first summit and it was pretty great!

Hiking

We did this hike as an overnighter (Sat-Sun) and it took us about 5 hours to the tarn with lots of stops and about a 20 pound pack. The last hour from the tarn to the peak is almost all shale. We hiked to the peak at 6am to avoid the heat and what a great idea that was! It was already hot coming down. Definitely would recommend this hike and do yourself a favour and go to the peak - it’s worth it. Stop and refill water at the creek - you’ll need it!

HikingGreat!No shadeScramble

Insane. Most of the trail switchbacks through the forest quite cute and nice. Then switchbacks through meadow until you get to a tarn with lots of flat expanse for camping. Then get ready to rock n roll. You’re in for a gruelling climb/scramble to the top where it never seems to end and it looks like the peak is just around the corner but never comes, until it does. You’ll be proud of yourself for completing this one. Hiking poles or wood sticks are very helpful coming down. Took us 5 hours up and 3.5 down including breaks.

Great trail! The scree is a bit of a pain to traverse, but worth it for the views at the top.

Takes about 2 hours to reach 17 Mile Creek from the Trailhead. This was the only reliable water source I came across. Another hour to the lake. About 1.5 hours to the summit. Red painted markers and some flagging line the route across the scree slope (the rock garden). Amazing views from the top makes this a must do summer hike.

It was a great hike ... beautiful views at the top . The distance was longer then what the app said . According to my recordings it was 23.7 km. Moderate hike through the forest ... last 3 km to the top required full concentration . But at the top made it worth while .

Hiked Outram on August 31. Only met 1 other person at the top so we had the entire mountain to ourselves! No bugs or flies up there :) The First 7 km of the trail are through a cute mossy forest, lots of switchbacks. Then you hit the meadows and trail is exposed for the remainder of 3 km. Last 2 km are over boulders and scree- well marked with red paint and ribbons. At the top it was cloudy and windy. My GPS indicated 10km with 1,850 m elevation gain. Hiked up in 4 hrs with a slow hiker. It can be done faster for sure!! 2:30 hrs down with a short lunch break. One source of water on the way up around km 6. There is a small pond before the scree if one wanted to overnight there.

Great hike!!! 22k according to Strava. Did in 7 hours! The hike through the forest was lovely. Lots of boulders near the end. Great place to camp at the lake as the trail to the lake is very well marked and easy to follow. Highly recommend.

FOUND! Hiked Wednesday. Found someone’s bear spray and multi-tool at the lake base camp. Message me on the gram to retrieve. (Harvey_travel) The hike itself was quite intense, switchbacks all the way up. Bring hiking poles. Lovely, nonetheless.

BackpackingBugsGreat!

We arrived on Tuesday afternoon and stayed overnight to enjoy both the sunset and Wednesday's gorgeous sunrise. We had the mountain to ourselves except for the usual locals — coyotes, marmots, etc. The air didn't move much so the bugs — horse flies, mosquitoes, black flies, etc — were a little thick; head nets were life savers. Nicer when there's a breeze, but the trade-off is that it gets cool fast. Nights typically drop below 0°C so best to check on weather to plan for appropriate gear. Seventeen Mile Creek was a great place to take a break and refill water containers on the way up; we used the Sawyer Squeeze filtration system. Good water source at the first lake (tiny stream) as well. The summit is not visible from the first lake; and, although we haven't tried going there, the summit would be visible from the larger lake S.E. of the smaller one. The trail along the scree becomes tougher to follow. I found that staying to the right (east) heading up is easier than where the markers & trail cairns (rock towers) guide you since the ground is not as rugged and the path is not as disorientating when looking down. Overall, worthwhile trip as long as the weather is mainly clear.

HikingBugsGreat!Rocky

Arrived at the lake around 2pm or so Saturday and about 5 tents were there. By the end of the night 10-15 tents were up over both lakes but still plenty of space available. There's room for a 1 person tent at the summit but if it's already taken you will likely have to go all the way back down. Wish there was a sign or something you can flip if you're going to take it. Grueling switchbacks most of the way to the lake but the trail is quite well worn. Bugs to be expected especially around the lakes. There is only one good water source about 2/3 of the way up before you hit the lakes. Finish with about a 1 hour scree climb to the summit. Class 1-2 scrambling. It is possible to get all the way to the summit on your feet.
