Scrambling Routes
Moderate scrambling. Little Hector is an unofficial name for a peak 2 km northwest of, but attached to, Mount Hector. Mount Hector, at 3394 m, requires glacier travel; this adjacent summit offers a similar view but avoids the glacier. When viewed from farther north at Mosquito Creek bridge, the peak has a striking pyramidal shape and the route up is clearly visible. The approach is short and you can descend by a slightly different route for variety. Try from about mid-July on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 290
