Elk/Thurston 31/05/08

Ahmad on Elk/Thurston:
“Five of us did the hike to Thurston peak on a clear day. Most of snow has melted from the edge of the south face of the ridge. It was just wide enough to walk on it most of the way. We didn’t need to use our snowshoes. The last kilometre was covered by snow. We opted to hike it and break our trail. There was about 1.5m of snow when we reached Thurston peak. The ridge offers better views that the peak itself. We met several groups on the way up. None of them summited it. Mount McGuire and Cheam seem still have loads of snow. It took us eight hours to do the hike.”
