7 (2,3,2) - Moderate Terrain, >500M ascent, 6Km - 10Km
- Route not marked
Follow the clearly defined rocky path up the open mountain. After about 3km, there is a Y-junction (in between two streams with a fence). Turn left here, heading straight across a bog to the Devil's Punch Bowl (670m). The top point of your route is visible across the lake in front of you. Turn left at the lake and go clockwise around the it, with a steep climb upwards as you go to the east of the lake. Follow the path around the top of the crag overlooking the lake, enjoying the panoramic views! The actual summit of the mountain (839m) is on your left. Keep going clockwise around the lake, descending towards the stream coming off the lake, and follow the path back down to where you started.
