    2007-8-25 Turn up the well signed Portman Creek Road (waypoint provided), and make your way to the PARKING waypoint - this is a decent 2wd logging road. I camped right at the trailhead. The trail starts out steep gainin...

    The approach along the road is boring and one quickly wishes it was open to public. The views aren't terribly exciting, but there were some interesting formations, fossils and wild flowers on this scramble. Also saw some...

    This is not a very popular scramble and once off the hiking trail, route finding can be a bit tricky up to Cegnfs. From Cegnfs to Mount Murray, the route is pretty obvious. This GPS track involves some difficult scrambli...

    A really fun scramble with a really interesting ascent via the headwall overlooking Ross Lake. The ascent line we took was quite fun, but the descent had a lot of loose rock and was a bit slower going.
