Rambler Peak from Trio Mountain
This peak is a triangular rock horn located in the headwaters of Elk River, forming a hydrographic divide. The Wolf, Elk, Ucona Rivers, and Cervus Creek all flow from Rambler.

The regular route ascends a steep gully that begins at the left side of the upper right part of the snowfield. It is at least class 4 and has some loose rock, so helmets are advised. The upper face in the centre of the photo, above the snowfield, has been climbed at least a couple of different ways of low to mid class 5 difficulty on solid rock. Access to these routes is generally via a lower rock (or snow, early in the season) gully that reaches this snowfield at its left end. The somewhat popular west buttress route is on the opposite side of the mountain. The peak on the left is Rambler Jr, a dramatic fin of rock that is more impressive seen end-on.

Name Notes: The summit is named after the Island Mountain Ramblers party who made the first ascent.
