Anthozoan Mountain
Day 1. After arriving at the Hidden Lake Campground (sk5), we immediately unpacked, set-up our camp then, planned the scramble. We started with an ascent to Anthozoan Mountain, then a traverse to Brachiopod Mountain. The approach was a little bit long from sk5 but the scenery along the way was awesome. Our roundtrip camp to camp time took 6:30 hours.

Day 2. Our planned trip for this day was an ascent to Mt. Richardson, a traverse to Pika Peak, and another traverse to Ptarmigan Peak. The weather was not what anybody would want to have on an outing like this. We had a mixture of rain, hale, and snow. Our overall roundtrip time was a very painful 11:15hrs.

We had a very nice view the whole time while we were on the ridge.

(3) 3:00hrs from sk5. It was just an easy hike from the col to the summit.
After a brief stay at the summit, we went back down to the col to bag Brachiopod Mountain.
