Trip Report

Mount Yarrow is an unofficial peak on the southeast end of Spread Eagle (Roche) Mountain. It looked pretty close from the summit of Spread Eagle and I thought maybe 15 minutes would cover the traverse time to its summit. As with most ridge traverses though, I underestimated the terrain that's hidden in its curves!
