  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Mileage: 7.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,000 ft
8: AM at Mowich Lake
Although there are 3 summits on this trip, the gain for all three peaks is only about 3000 feet. We will do the trip counter-clockwise, hiking the Spray Park trail first and returning to Mowich via Knapsack Pass. If the weather is good, we may add an optional 4th summit: First Mother Mountain. The road to Mowich Lake is scheduled to open at the end of June this year; if that is delayed by more than a week, I'll have to change the destination of this scramble.
