Peak #4 – Windtower

Windtower is more of a hike than a scramble.  It has the most defined trail of the 10 peaks we are climbing, but with nearly 900m of gain in 4km it is still not a cake walk.  Our plan is to ascend via the more direct and less frequently used route south of Spurling Creek.  Two-thirds of the route is a steep trail through the trees, while the final 3rd rejoins with the main trail above treeline.  Windtower boasts excellent views of the Spray Valley and is a very popular hiking trail in the summer.
