Don't underestimate the bushwhack! Not the worst I've ever done but it's enough to throw you off track quite quickly.Raf gazes up at the east face of Storelk with our approach to the col below.The east face / ridges from the col. Ascent line is up the line between scree and grass until the upper face where you have to pick your own.The lower route is fairly easy but still loose. I wouldn't want a big group here.This picture of Raf shows the steep angle of the east face. In the background you can spot Storm (L) and Mist (R) mountains.Looking down at Raf picking his way up the lower east face.Looking down at Raf picking his way up the lower east face.Looking along a traverse bench and back at Raf climbing his way up towards it.Looking up a difficult section on the east face.Looking down at Raf and another obvious traverse ledge on the face.Looking down the east face.Off the east face, looking towards the summit of Storelk.Looking off the summit ridge across hwy 40 at Storm and Mist Mountains.Looking back at Raf (somewhere in this photo!) and along the spine of the Elk Range and the North American continent.Joanna and Harvey descending.Joanna and Harvey descending.
