Gripped - - THE ROUTE -

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.
