From Peak 4 along the Bryant Ridge peaks, the next stop was this survey marker. In the way? A long ridge with some scrambling. We followed right along the ridge from Peak 4 and encountered an interesting colour change in the rock as it went from grey to brown. Along the brown shale-like scree ridge we hit a short easy scramble step - that was the warm up for what was to come.
Further along we moved back onto grey rock and were met with a steep cliff band. I spotted an exposed rock slab that looked like it could work - so we went to check it out. I went first... not too bad... and the other side was easy terrain. I hollered over to hunthikers that it looked good... his turn! It did indeed take some concentration as it was slightly exposed, but hunthikers made it through without issue. We scrambled back up to the ridge and took a break. Phew!
After the break it was a simple ridgewalk over to the cap. After tearing apart the cairn, we quickly [FOUND] the cap in great shape! What an awesome spot! It was a long hike to this point, but we weren't done yet - in fact we continued on to summit Bryant peaks 5, 6 and 7 before heading back home. What a day! This cap was certainly a highlight. Thanks!
