    The only area with a reasonable forecast was Vancouver, so I switched Midian Pk (ne of Pemberton) to Hat Mtn via its ‘tricky’ north ridge.  From the Wettin/Hat col the ridge was steep, but the snow was bomber, and there was a good run out.  About 45m below the summit the route traversed east on a ledge system.  It was only exposed in one short section (that had a great firm tree to hold onto).  Then it was a bit exposed getting up to the summit plateau; but the snow remained firm and great for kicking steps into.

    The route is marked, and it wouldn’t be that difficult in summer.
