The terrain immediately north of the summit forced us back out onto the west slabs.Looking back at the summit of Morrison - the ridge is pretty intimidating! I can't believe I was thinking about doing this peak with Turner, loaded with snow.A nanny goat with her kid.Find the goats (lower left). What a wild scene this was - imagine no wind except for a gentle, cool breeze, exposure and vistas such as this.Reaching a high point on the traverse.Looking back along our traverse from Morrison with now-familiar views of the Spray Lakes and Burstall Pass peaks completing the panorama.Phil and our next objective rising in shadow. Note the lower cliff band on the east nose of the peak - this was the crux.Owl Peak finally looks like a proper mountain! The crux is starting to look like a 'crux' too, but it proved much easier than it appears.Mount Turner from just above the crux.Looking back at Morrison (L) and Byng (R).There were a lot of wildflowers along our traverse - even though it's high alpine.Looking back at Morrison (L) and Byng (R).Nice easy rambling along the summit ridge with clouds slowly building but only adding to the views.An easy scramble along the ridge just before the summit.Alcantara, Gloria, Eon, Aye, Assiniboine, Marvel, Terrapin, The Towers, Wonder, Cautley and Mercer.Looking over Bryant Creek to Assiniboine Pass and up the Allenby Pass past Cautley, Allenby and Beersheba (R).Beersheba (R) doesn't look easy.Mount Alcantara looms over the Marvel Pass area.Next to Mount Assiniboine, I find Mount Eon to be one of the more aesthetic peaks in the area.
