Walcott Peak
Yoho National Park, B.C.
August 7, 2002

Walcott Peak, the summit north of Mount Burgess, is a straightforward, moderate scramble. Follow the Burgess Pass trail to an avalanche slope. From there, head to a wide gully. The steep gully climbs to a scree slope leaving a plod to the summit. Views are limited on the ascent since you're mostly stuck in a gully, but the scene from the summit makes up for climb.
