McGill finally visited

Since bagging Bagheera, I did one quick nightime ski run, and spent yesterday morning running around Macpherson, skiing a few of the fingers, till I reached 10080ft and then home. Pretty decent for being so close to town.

Today I went out expecting to do some laps at Mcgill shoulder and pull in 10 000 feet and then go home. But  Jeff called midway through my first run and said he would join me. So I skied 2 runs and met up with him around noon.

The weather was teasing me and I could see summits so I suggested we push up towards the true summit. Somehow I have never been to the summit of Mcgill and ever since climbing Bagheera and I kind of needed to.Mcgill was the last in the range that i had not summitted. Hermit/Swiss/Rogers/Sifton/Grizzly/UrsusMinor/8812/UrsusMajor/Catamount/Bagheera/Copper/MCGILL. There are still a few other named peaks in that range that I have not climbed like Truda/Fleming/grant but the major ones have now been visited. Pretty fun to finally summit Mcgill.

It was a burly day though, the weather never improved and we were wind blasted and snow rhymed while climbing the ridge. I would like to re visit this summit on a sunny day to really get a feel for the climb. Today was simply whiteout and windy but adventurous.
