The east side of Mount Sparrowhawk taken from Highway 40. The east and north sides of Sparrowhawk are comprised of very steep cliffs, quite a contrast the west slopes which are low angled scree slopes and serve as the scramble route. The scramble route itself is on the west slopes on the other side of the mountain, but it tops out at the saddle to the left of the summit, then heads left up the slopes that face the camera to gain the summit.
The south/southeast aspect of Mount Sparrowhawk with full late spring snow cover taken from the Spray Lakes Road. It's no wonder that some wanted to put a ski hill up there. There was a plan at one time to make Sparrowhawk the site of the 1988 Winter Olympics skiing events. However, with more research they found out there is never enough snow and at times extremely windy up there. This view is rare, even in mid-winter there is rock visible on the south aspect and scree slopes as much of the snow in places is blown away by the wind.
The southeast aspect of Mount Sparrowhawk taken from the summit of Mount Bogart, and it is pretty rare to see snow in this area in July. The scrambling route up the west slopes comes up from the bottom left to gain the snow filled saddle to the left of the summit. It then contours around to the southwest slopes and goes up scree just to the right of the summit. The original ascent of the peak, the ESE ridge route, goes up the right skyline and aspect of the mountain.
