Trip Report

Ever since I first read about Mount Ogden (likely from Nugara a decade ago), it's been on my endless to-do list of peaks. Nugara added the peak to his second scrambles book. When Kane added it to his latest book, with a different lower access route than Nugara's, it only peaked my interest (pun intended). Earlier this year I joined Liz and Mike for a delightful trip up Divide Mountain, which granted me excellent views of Ogden. Based on negative trip reports from Kane's route via Sherbrooke Lake and a manky avalanche slope, I knew I wanted to utilize Nugara's approach up the south ridge directly from the Trans Canada Highway.
