This is primarily a climbing trail from Squirrel pass after descending Rush Hour up to the Sproatt viewpoint with stunning views of the Whistler valley. Then descending Last Call back to Squirrel Pass before continuing to climb back up to Squirrel Lake and LOTS. There is an option to skip Rush Hour and Descend Happy Hour to Squirrel Pass. Caution not to mistake this trail at the junction with On The Rocks for LOTS and descend Happy Hour unintentionally.
