Trip Report

After staring at it while ascending 6 or 7 peaks in the Two O'Clock Creek area of David Thompson Country, I finally managed to ascend Elliott Peak solo, on Monday, June 19 2017. Mike Mitchell is absolutely correct when he labels this scramble as nothing more than a "hike on loose scree" - but it's his follow-up wording that maybe I should have paid a bit more attention to;

 

the presence of significant snow or ice would make this ramp a dangerous place
