Ridge S of Racehorse Creek

Spring is kind of here, crocuses are out. While there is still snow on north facing slopes, south facing ridges, like this ridge 25 km north of Coleman, are clear of snow. I was up this ridge on 17th April. This is a hike up mostly open slopes to a viewful 1920m (6300') elevation summit. Event picture is view north from near the top. See Maps in the discussion area.
