The first hour and a half you will wind your way through mature second growth on your way to an unnamed lake. The lake has a suitable area for a tent, however, the bugs were thick while I stopped. I would suggest grabbing some water if you are low as the next hour and half is more of the same. You will contour around a few rock outcrops and skirt a large boulder slide until you come upon a smaller scree slide. A discernable set of tight switchbacks snakes its way to the first plateau. As you begin to approach lush alpine lupin peaking there heads out from the scree you know you are close to the plateau. This pleasant plateau has a few tarns and plenty of spots to set up a tent or two. From here you are greeted with beautiful views on the west side of Buttle Lake and Marble Meadows as you ramble across some beautiful cross-country terrain. After about 45 minutes you come upon another set of tarns and some ideal camping locations. The weather was cloudy, foggy and misty so I decided to set up camp here and see if the weather would blow over. The fog would part only briefly to provide views of the surrounding mountains. I stayed put for the afternoon.
I woke up in the morning at around 6:30am and the weather was still quite dank.... To see the full trip report you must login as a paid member. Use the Login Page. (message p3)
