Hailstone Butte is a high grassy ridge, more often than not raked by west winds moving at Mach 2. Quite apart from the two hugely different routes presented here, there are other ways up sans trails. Such as the south ridge route which can be added to A to make a loop. Personally, I'm rather fond of the rocky east ridge from Johnson Creek, which offers glimpses into Johnson Creek's colourful canyon. Distance 9 km, height gain 543 m. The fire road is the longest, easiest route to the summit. Over half of it has been incorporated into the Husky Oil road system and is best tackled by bike.
