The west/southwest aspect of Mist Mountain which is a big mountain that is even steeper on the east side and usually retains snow well into the summer. Although not part of the Opal Range, Mist has the same type of thrusting where soft layers sandwiched between hard layers were thrusted almost near vertical. The soft layer then erodes leaving the hard layers to appear as pinaccles.
The mountain itself can be scrambled along the NW ridge which is the left sklyine, or the SW ridge which is the right skyline, the SW ridge being more difficult. The NW scramble route typically comes up the grass slopes that start at lower middle to the top of the knob. It thens goes onto the face pretty much straight upward to gain the ridge, then follows along or just below it to the summit.
This picture provides a unique view of Mist showing the east face and very loose south face (downwards and left from the summit) which is the easiest way up the mountain. The view is from the highpoint of the Pickle Jar Lakes Trail.
