A mostly unpleasant talus hop from camp on Froze-To-Death Plateau
Mount Peal's northeast ridge extends down from the summit (top right). We hoped to gain access to its broad crest via the steep scree/talus slope shortly before its abrupt terminus. It was clear from the start that this route would suck, but it was by far the most practical way to climb Mount Peal from Froze-To-Death Plateau.

The talus and scree slope giving access to Mount Peal's northeast ridge was terrible. Very large, loose boulders made it a somewhat dangerous undertaking. Use extreme caution.
Beautiful and remote Turgulse Lake.
