I will be going up Ontario Peak “the hard way”.
This means parking a car at Icehouse Trailhead, then driving down to Barrett Stoddard Rd.
Walk up the road to Cascade Canyon, then head up to Turtle’s Beak. After a short rest, continue on to Ontario Peak. Then the easy part, go straight down the ridge to Sugarloaf, then down Falling Rock Canyon back to Icehouse and the parking lot.
Class 3 climbing with exposure.
Should see no snow, but in parts of the climb there could be patches.
