The well-worn way to Reynolds Peak from Dog Lake.

Description

Upon arriving at Dog Lake, you're sure to find a skin track heading west into the trees that emerges onto the north shoulder of Reynolds Peak. In true "Wasangeles" style, it will be a steep track, in many places going straight up the fall-line. I prefer to make my own zig-zags in such cases.

There are some places along the way that may be pit-worthy. Beware the east face of Reynolds Peak, a well-known slide-path. If things don't feel right, ski the south-east shoulder to access Tom's Hill. The east face of the peak is often well guarded by a cornice line. Dropping onto the face may be a bit tricky in this case. Cutting one of the cornices might be a good test of stability, but make sure that absolutely no one is in the run-out zone.
