Description Suggest change

The north end of cannon has a vast low angle area where smooth slabs meet steep overlaps and lead to a dramatic headwall. Lakeview and Consolation Prize are fun and popular among others.

Getting There Suggest change

Walk across the foot bridge and go right along the stream until you can break left up hill on a climbers trail. This leads to talus and eventually the slabs.
