Caption: West ridge of Dreadnought with Dreadnought W1 (Demon Peak) at left.

PhotoDescr: Before my first visit to Watersprite Lake I tried to climb Dreadnought via its West ridge on skis and reached Demon Peak from the logging roads to the left, but the connecting ridge was too narrow and the north side too steep and corniced. The second attempt in summer I followed the ridge further right but was stopped by a difficult gap, choked with krummholz, an impenetrable coniferous thicket

In background is Mount Garibaldi at left and Darling Peak far right.
