Trip Report

I left truck at 0930 after an easy but long drive. My muscles were still a bit sore after my recent Assiniboine trip but I was feeling pretty good overall. I was originally planning on a Victoria Peak / ridge trip but was concerned I didn't have enough time any more. I'd do that one the next day instead so I needed a shorter trip. I probably wasn't really ready for a Nugara 'difficult' but I started up anyway. I headed up steep grassy slopes north west of parking area and then  up an obvious break lower down in the cliff band than Nugara suggests but it worked perfectly.
