A long day but with interesting views along the way. Unfortunately, however, we summited under poor weather conditions. The summit itself was buried under a huge cornice and required care in ascending. The ridge was in fog, preventing me from taking a panorama.

Looking back at Sherbrooke Lake, trail is visible left
Mount Niles overlooks the meadow. Mount Daly is out of sight here.
We passed by Mount Niles
Mt Daly centre: after hiking around the "pyramid" on the left, we scrambled up the slope.

Plenty of snow to cross
Taking a break partway up the slope
Plenty of loose rock on the slope we climbed. Mount Niles in the background.
Looking down at Sherbrooke Lake
The long ridge of Mount Daly. The snow-capped summit is a considerable distance away.
Looking north towards the summit. Note the figure on top.
As we approached the summit clouds move in.

The view of the ridge past the summit lasted only a few minutes (mouse over)

On the way back, we had a clear view of Mount Daly
