Williams Peak 01/09/08

Ahmad at Williams Peak:
“A blanket of grass was the way to the summit. It was not exposed and wasn’t much of a scramble. All seven of us summited. We did our ascent through fairly hard weather: rain, hail, and even snow. The weather improved later on but we hardly had any views. The trail to Williams Ridge is steep and fairly well-marked. The last kilometre to the summit is rough and rocky and gets steep nearby the summit. There are sporadic cairns and ribbons on the way but not many. If you go around the trees clockwise at elevation 1860 m to get up on the south-west ridge of the summit you will hardly encounter any scramble. The way to the summit is a well-defined, fairly wide gully covered by grass on the south face. Many loose rocks so helmets are necessary. We didn’t see anyone on the trail and saw recent bear scat on the ridge. Our whole trip took 11:05 hours. Special thanks to Tim Gage for providing me important information about the trail.”
