PhotoDescr: My brother and I decided to make camp at Caldron Lake on the August long weekend to try some scramble routes up Caldron Peak, Mistaya Mountain and Mount Patterson. This photo was taken in the evening of our day in from the summit of Caldron Peak.

My brother was saving his strength for the upcoming ascents so I slogged up scree to the summit of Caldron Peak on my own. I found a summit register up there placed by Rick Collier in 1992. It had no more than 15 entries total since then. I happily added an entry to it before heading down. The ascent took 3 1/2 hours round trip from our camp at Caldron Lake. Quite an enjoyable view for such an easy ascent.
