PhotoDescr: Shadow Lake can be seen below the east face of Ball. The subpeak to the right of Ball is Beatrice Peak, and across the valley and glacier is Stanley Peak. The right skyline of Storm is the aesthetic East Ridge, which has a grade III 5.6 Alpine route. There are no official routes on the east face of Ball, but it can be scrambled from the Haffner Creek (opposite) side. The Goodsirs can be seen in the background behind Storm.

There are a set of lakes called Twin Lakes that are nestled below the summit and east face of Storm which are not visible. These lakes can be accessed using the Gibbon Pass trail that comes out of Redearth Creek to the lakes. Gibbon Pass is below the ridge at the left end of the mountain.
