It's hard to get a picture of a mountain when you are on it. You can only get pictures of a tiny bit.

Here is a picture of Jocelyn standing on the tippy top:

There are several spots for camping near the peak including this one

The first time I walked up to the mountain, I didn't even go to the peak. I had to stop to rest about four times. The two people with me stopped about a third of the way up and said they would wait for me to come back.

The east side is really steep and even features some cliffs:

Cool, what's the elevation of BC and how high up do you think the peak of your mountain is?

Good question! Paul estimates that the mountains rises about 500 feet above base camp.

Here's an early morning sunrise as it looks from the back (West) side of the mountain.
