Via Welsh Lakes. Ref: Aaron Cameron and Matt Gunn's Hikes around Invermere & the Columbia River Valley.
From the back of Middle Welsh Lake, 354074, work your way through the boulder field towards Antrim's north-west slopes then traverse in a southerly direction to easily reach the summit of Leitrim. There is no need to gain the col between Antrim and Leitrim.

Scramble: We camped at the Middle Welsh Lake. The next day we woke up to at least 5 cm of fresh snow. I hurried to the summit while Fab built a fire to keep the Pup warm and give me a great welcome back! fresh snow
