Write Up:
A group of five started the ascent of SW Cannon from the Going to the Sun Road just past Avalanche Lake instead of the more common route from Logan Pass. After some considerable elevation gain (4000 feet), we concentrated on ascending the ridge to the summit (another 1000 feet) but found it to be Class 4 and 5 so different routes were explored. One group member (Paul) finally made it above the cliff bands and to the summit while the rest of the group decided to try a different route on another day. The lone group member summiting SW Cannon decided it would be easier to exit via Logan Pass. In retrospect - the climb from GTTS Road is probably not the easiest or recommended route to get to Logan Pass.
