Returning to my local stomping grounds to Evan's and Alouette peaks with a small group for a bit of a workout hike.
The foot bed is really starting to come in now after you pass the Evan's / Alouette fork... quite a difference from a few years ago... lots of blazes and flagging to get you there now also.
To get up Evan's you have some mild forest scrambling and two sections of class 2 rock scrambling each with a rope... the first rope you encounter on the ascent looks old and low quality and the second rope is more robust with some negligible signs of wear... neither rope is essential but helpful for those less experienced.
The rest of the trip was pretty straight forward and I was surprised to find 3 people already on the peak and another group of 6 and two dogs showed up soon there after. Both parties came from the longer Mike Lake trail.
Have fun out there and stay safe.
