Mount Sparrowhawk 10 | 2010.10.11
It was mandatory attendance to a COC event to Mount Sparrowhawk. Wil was coordinating the event and he texted me that he needed a driver… So for the third time, I summited Sparrowhawk. I have to say I like Sparrow. It’s defiantly my top 20 peaks for me and since I have done it 3 times in 3 years in a row in 3 different seasons, now I have to go back to Sparrow in 2011 in winter to complete Sparrowhawk 4 seasons in 4 years in a row.
We parked our cars at Sparrowhawk day use area. Trail starts the other side of the road right behind highway sign. We followed the trail all the way above treeline then followed a ridge to Read’s Tower. Once at the Read’s cliff, we ascended little steeper rubble slope along the cliff for a while. Where the cliff ended now we faced a wide open long long rubble slope all the way up to the summit block. Aim right side (south) of summit block. The route to the summit is behind it and it’s just a steep scree slope.
