Fay Peak, Hessong Rock & Mount Pleasant


Alpine Scramble - Hessong Rock & Mount Pleasant

This will be a loop through Spray Park and Knapsack Pass. Depending on the heat, we'll do 2 or 3 relatively easy peaks along the way.

The plan is to hike to Spray Park, scramble Hessong Rock and Mt. Pleasant, then travel cross country to Knapsack Pass.  If we're not too tired and hot, it would be easy to scramble up First Mother from there.  Then, we'll complete the loop back to the lake.  If the bugs aren't too bad, some of us may cool off with a quick swim in the lake.
