Trip Report

After a long outing the week before to the Egypt Lakes area and a somewhat gloomy weather forecast, I decided to play it safe on Saturday, September 23 2017 with a nice fall hike on the western edge of the Lake O'Hara region in Yoho National Park. Wietse decided to join me on this venture. I found Consummation Peak while perusing the ViewRanger Landscape maps in areas that I knew had larches. There was only one trip report online for this minor summit and it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for - something fairly low (not in the clouds) and easy (there was fresh snow).

We did this peak last Saturday. It was awesome. We are the first 3 people (2 adults + 1 child) you've met on your way down from this peak last year. The ones who asked you about Monica Lake. You explained to us about this peak. :) We are also the same 3 people whom you met on your way down from Midnight Peak. The ones whom you think are crazy for not bringing GPS or map :) We made it out unscathed there. It was thrilling yet very memorable :D That was actually the first time we ever got lost. Lesson learned, we have GPS now :D We probably will see each other again in other peaks. Cheers! :)

LOL - what a small world! I remember you now! I'm glad you have a GPS now - it certainly makes things much easier hey? wink I'm sure I'll see you again some day - make sure you stop me next time and remind me that we've met.
