The crux on Whyte can be multiple. There are some rappel stations, therefore, I advise taking a short rope. This was the summer of the 2003 fires. Most photos were not worth posting. However, I do have a very cool shot of the Mitre, posing like an active volcano. Really it was just a fire behind Mitre that caused the effect. I will post it on the Mitre page if and when I get it climbed. I like this traverse, if just visiting, a good scramble to include amongst your climbs. If the scramble is too lame, do the Alpine Route up the east ridge of Whyte. It looks nice and I hear the rock is better than most in the area. Cheers!
