This refers to the southernmost tip of the ridge extending SSE from Mt. Lawson at 306209. The summit is an unusual viewpoint; and lastly there's the option of going farther.
Start: Hwy. 742 (Smith-Dorrien/Spray Trail). About 200 m north of Peninsula day-use area access road, park at the intersection of gated TransAlta roads.
Difficulty: There's a rudimentary trail most of the way, the gradient is gentle with occasional steep steps and a rock ridge at the top adds spice;
Note: It is possible to hike down to the meadows and tarns at the head of this long, straight, dead-end valley that are extraordinarily hard to get to.

Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
