Trip Report

Group of 9 BCMC members summited Sky Pilot, beginning from the gondola upper base. We had ideal spring conditions - snow from above the forest section until the Pink Slab. Snow was perfect - consolidated, easily walkable and boot pack friendly. Crampons and microspikes were very handy, but on the steep finish (40ish degrees) crampons and ice axes proved the most advantageous.

The scramble was excellent - dry rock and great visibility. Summit was windless but small clouds passed by constantly changing the view. The climb down was also great - snow allowed for a lot of glissading!

Debrief on the patio to finish the day off.
