"Windy in the drive out at 6am. 2 of three of us had done North Opal. So we settled on what we interpreted Kane to say as "Opal Ridge" Traverse as opposed to "Opal" "Ridge Traverse". Coming from the south we had no company and the wind was at our back for most of the 6.5 hr circuit. We met folks at the north summit of Opal Ridge. Some light snow overnight meant the mountains were spectacular. A hard rain and then wind slab on eastern slopes allowed easy travel but an omen for later in the avalanche season. We sat on all the summits with no wind and managed to walk the ridge or just east of the " - alexjoseph, Oct 27, 2018
"Two high points that are similar in height I traversed to get both peaks and the one marked here on the Peakery map which is the farther one to the south. No major issuesalong the ridge just a little snow, there seemed to be an easier way for anything that seemed to be difficult. Snow mainly just on the ridge and very few trees for ticks to hang around on although I did see a tick on a rock. Their were also some interesting fossils at one point" - Randy, Apr 3, 2016
"CSMC trip. Didn't find a "normal route" trail (left of main gully). Took to the right of main gully. Was interesting. Almost no snow. Good scramble and work-out. Descending: normal route." - alexp, Mar 29, 2015
"This was an awesome trip! We went off trail and went straight up the face and ended up on the summit. Tons of cool scrambling and fossils. Took the regular route down until we went into the creek to investigate some bear tracks. This ended up on perilous down climbing and bush whacking. Made for a real adventure." - mathias-strangemann, Jun 21, 2014
"A change from the plan... An old favorite, great weather with clear sky, very little wind and new hikers. Just over 3 hours up, about 2 hours down. Barbara and Myself. Elevation gain for the peak 1000m, YTD elevation gain 52588m." - MtnJohn, Sep 28, 2012
