PhotoDescr: My brother and I decided to make camp at Caldron Lake on the August long weekend to scramble whatever we could. On this day we ascended the moraine beneath the North Face of Peyto Peak to gain the headwall surrounding Caldron Lake and then traversed north to Mistaya Mountain. The route up to Mistaya Mountain is very simple and only requires intermediate scrambling skills. It mostly involves a lot of cross-country travel. Your reward for all this travel is great views of 14 of the 11000-foot peaks and four icefields.
