Two things I learned today hiking to these summits. One, I enjoy helping others in the group get around the trail safely. Some parts of the trail can be tricky, especially on steep descents that are icy, or across large granite slabs. It's always smart to help your hiking companions so that no one gets hurt and everyone can enjoy the day's hike. And secondly, even if this is a group event, there are always going to be a couple of hikers who only care to help themselves however experienced/knowledgeable they are.
I couldn't wait to take this route!
There is a path to the right of these cliffs for
those who don't want to go up the cliffside.
Trail junction - another way to the Mt. Percival summit
via rough boulders and yet another cave!
