Everybody here at Horton Creek, except Paige and Fred, they are on their way
Paige , Fred and Molly!
Somehow last night we decided to climb Morgan! Bex at the TH
Big and little bear tracks
Me with big heart rock!
Joe let us know -do NOT go up the drainage at the end of Francis Lake. We went up the left side of the lake, much better.
Looking back down at the lake from ridge above
Bex heading up. At this point we weren't positive of the route, but turns out we were on track.
Setting moon on ridge to the west
Now aiming for the small drainage ( Morgan behind)
Once we got to top of small drainage, we turned right and headed towards the low point on ridge. Stay to the right on the way(sometimes use trail). Easy route finding.
Bex taking in the view from low point on ridge. David was ahead, we could see hime every now and then going up the ridge.
Looking back down LLV
the lower part of ridge
Bex ahead after not feeling so good - gave her a goo and she was back in it :) We both felt the elevation today. Slept low last night :(
Almost there.--- well it looked like that at the time. If you look closely, I am pretty sure that is David on the summit!
Cool rocks on plateau before starting up final gain.
Plateau heading over to Broken Finger
view North ish
Bear Creek Spire.
Dade and Abbott
Boundary on the horizon
Bex and Sooz
Silly on the summit!
Heading down- took almost no time at all to get to down the ridge
Took a nice different route down to the trail and lake.
Super "group campsite" area :)
Almost back to vehicles
Sam came back to camp- we were all pretty tired but still had some fun
Good end to a great day. :)
