A remarkable, but dangerous, climb up Resolution Mountain right from the Fowler Hilliard Hut.

Nick Wilder
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Resolution Mountain, and the huge bowl facing east below the peak, cry out to be skied when viewed from the hut. While this climb up to the peak on a windy ridge is relatively safe, the bowl below is likely to be extremely dangerous.

There's not much you need to know about this one - as long as the visibility is good, just climb directly up the ridge to the summit. There are no real obstacles.
