This should be aspectacular trip with amazing views. This peak is also called as 'The Onion'. More info here:http://on-top.ca/Outings/2016/The-Onion-September-2016.html


Note: This is a physically strenuous trip with some exposed scrambling. Therefore, you'll need to be in good hiking shape and have previous scrambling experience. Sign-up for the waitlist and I'll add people depending on their experience and drivers available. We move at a fast pace, with only a few small hydration breaks, plus a break at the summit. Good above average fitness required. This trip is not for you if you're slower and/or like taking a lot of breaks/photos along the way.
