The correct parking spot is a couple of hundred meters south of the Sparrowhawk day use area.Kev hikes up the ridge. Make sure you don't stray too far left or you'll end up in the creek or on Read's Tower!We hit tree line. The wind and winter conditions really picked up once we broke through the trees.Kev pops up on the ridge.The route is obvious now! Sparrowhawk is in the clouds to the left.It was tempting to drop the snow shoes early on the ridge, but we didn't and were glad for that decision!Looking back at Spray Lakes and Nestor and Old Goat.Looking over Mount Fortune and the south end of Spray Lakes.Shortly after this section we dumped the 'shoes.Snowshoes are off on the rubble.
