Trip Details:

Comox glacier, with a day trip circumventing Argus to summit Harmston.

Day 1: Hike to the west shoulder of Comox Glacier, setup camp for the evening.

Day 2: Circumvent Argus down blocky ridge section, over snowfield to Harmston approach. Summit Harmston and return the same route (I have a GPX track for this nice option of circumventing Argus).

Day 3: Hike out.

I expect this trip to involve backpacking, moderate mountaineering, a little snow travel and some 3rd class scrambling (likely a few 4th class chunks).
