Sparrowhawk is a very steep, but relatively simple peak. Basically you go straight up on mostly well-defined trail, gaining 1400m in 5km. The summit views are amazing, and the relatively simple scrambling will be a welcome way to end the day after struggling through the more difficult scrambling on Engadine and Bogart. We plan to ascend Sparrowhawk from the Sparrowhawk Tarns, after descending to the tarns from Mount Bogart. Depending on how quickly we are moving, we expect to see the sunset from the summit. I’m really hoping we don’t have to scramble up this route in the dark, but the navigation is straight-forward enough that I don’t think a night ascent would be particularly dangerous.
After descending Sparrowhawk we will head back to the van for dinner and a nap before our early morning ascent of Lougheed.
