Remembering Fred M6 WI5 330 m
Approach: Park as for Taylor Lake, just off the Trans-Canada Highway, north of Castle Junction. Just before Taylor Lake, approximately seven kilometres in, take the trail posted for O’Brien Lake and hike for another two kms. As you approach the lake look up and left (south) and you’ll see the skinny pillar that is the second pitch. Hike up the boulder field on the left near the end of the lake to access the start of the route. On the first ascent we geared up at lake to expedite our hike out after the walk off. It’s nine kilometres and 840 m gain to base. Most of the approach is on a good trail, three to 3.5 hours. Later in the year you may want to consider skis or snowshoes.
