Mount Daly
Field, B.C.
June 22, 2001

Mount Daly makes for a long day but with interesting views along the way. Unfortunately, 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.
