2016.06.11 | Midnight Peak & Midday Peak | 2352 / 2339 / 1522 TH | 13.6km | TA 1522

Just a little ways down Hwy 40 so we were on the summit before 10am. Good steady approach with the final bit on scree. Some unsettled weather had us waffling on the traverse to Midday Peak but we decided to try it anyway and were treated to a lovely rainbow and some updrafted snow pellets up the nose as well as gusty wind. We saved our breaks for places we could get into the lee of something. I rather enjoyed this hike, even though for the second week in a row we had to ascend the same peak twice - what's with that?
