Trip Report

On our way to scramble Nigel Peak and Mount Wilcox the day before, Rod and I had noticed that Mount Temple's northwest ridge (the scramble route) looked amazingly free of snow or ice. We were planning another day trip with Wietse for Saturday, September 15 2007 and since this was going to be my 150th peak and I've been waiting for the *perfect* day to do Temple, it seemed like the right objective. It was.
