The B.C. Mountaineering Club is restoring access to Mamquam Mountain. Five days of work so far with a crew of up to 9 volunteers was just clearing impenetrable alder from the old overgrown roadbed. Two hundred meters of dense alder jungle remain before the edge of old growth timber is reached next to Paranoid Creek.

At the creek, a footbridge built in the 1990s has long since been washed away. The plan is to furbish handrails on a large, naturally fallen log just upstream.

Biked up the Garibaldi FSR, in Squamish. At the snow-line (1100 m), I switched to crampons to run. Returned at the Warming Hut / Red Heather shelter, deciding instead to bike the many downhill trails.

Hiked up the Baden Powell route, from Marine Drive in West Vancouver. No snow till after Eagle Bluffs! The route to St. Marks started patchy, with no skinning/skiing possible.
