BCP531 - Mount Inflexible
Our capping team got an early start from the Sawmill parking area and really enjoyed the challenge of getting to the summit of Mount Inflexible via the connecting ridge with Kent North.
We made good time and headed up a forestry road and later through the forest to the ridge that leads to the Kent North Outlier. The hike up to Kent North is straight forward and in no time we were signing the summit log.
The trip across to Inflexible is simply a difficult scramble and especially since there was quite a bit of the white stuff on the ground. The trek across the ridge provides sections of significant exposure, constant loose scree, and best of all amazing photo opportunities.
It took awhile to find the cap on the summit with the summit cairn, old surveyor materials, and of course the snow. The cap is in pristine condition and waiting for it's next caching visitors.
Our track log showed a round trip distance of 14.3 km with well over 1200 metres of elevation gain. Thanks to reastick and rustywa for the terrific company on the trail and to OFTH for selecting this elevated location!
