This Trail is an extension of the trail leading to Mt. Pelops.

From the Sandspit campsite at Lake Lovely Water: there is a trail running up the left side of the creek that drains the Niobe-Omega Basin into Lake Lovelywater.

From the Basin there is a trail which leads from the right side of the creek under a prominent gray rock band to a corner.

This route is difficult to discern, by ascending the snowfield, and picking your way through rock ramps and slab, the snowfield that leads to the Iota-Pelops Col can be regained.

From the Iota-Pelops Col. Iota Mtn. is summited with no technical difficulty.

To gain Mt. Pelops scramble down the east side of Iota to the Iota-Pelops Col. Contour Left to a bushy gully, trending left to easily gain the summit of Mt. Pelops.

Descent is by the same route as ascent, but much faster through the snowfields.

Directions:

The hike into the Lake starts by following the river to a dry creek. We headed up the creek bed, following flagging tape; although an easier, more enjoyable trail is also available, The trail than climbs steeply through a cut block, into old growth, finally paralleling the creek which originates from Lake Lovelywater.

Lake lovely water is beautiful, with camping at the ACC Hut, or the sandspit: which can be accesssed by following the trail indicated by the BC Parks sign for the Niobe-Omega basin.
