Mike enjoys a magical morning at Devon Lakes.The sun rises over Clearwater Pass in this view to Dip Slope Mountain from Devon Lakes.Descending from Clearwater Pass into the Siffleur River valley / trail.Hiking NW along the soaking wet lower Siffleur trail with Watermelon and Bobac rising at left.The trail is overgrown enough that we got absolutely soaked from the morning dew.Starting our off trail ramble towards the lower SW slopes of Clearwater Mountain.Looking back down the lower SW ridge of Clearwater across the Siffleur Valley.Ascending the lower SW ridge of Clearwater Mountain. This mountain is huge!Mike and Cornelius are tiny on the lower SW ridge with Watermelon Peak looming across the Siffleur.Views back across the Siffleur Valley to Watermelon Peak.Another rubble field to ascend. Endless rubble but endless views as well. It's worth it.Cornelius on the huge SW ridge / face of Clearwater Mountain.Views back across the Siffleur Valley to Mount Hector.I thought the snow patch high above was about 20 minutes away. An hour later I wasn't there yet!Stunning views over Clearwater Pass and the Siffleur Valley as we near the summit ridge.Stunning views over Clearwater Pass and the Siffleur Valley as we near the summit ridge.The summit block looks intimidating from the top of the SW ridge.Views off the summit ridge east over the Willingdon Glacier towards Mount Harris / Willingdon (R).A perfect perch along the summit ridge with views of Harris, Willingdon, Crown, South Tower, Hector.Looking back at the moderate down climb I did at mid center. Easier terrain at lower right.
