Participant Information

A classic peak near Vancouver. See Matt Gunn's book for detailed information.

This trip involves some steep and exposed scrambling in addition to being fairly long and strenuous as a day trip. A small pocket glacier needs to be crossed and I'm not sure what shape it is in, so participants must bring a helmet, lightweight crampons ( or some kind of boot traction devices) and ice axe (or at least solid trekking pole). No ropes will be used. The scrambling on the upper portion of the peak is best done in approach shoes with sticky rubber.

We will meet at 06:20 at St-David's Church at Taylor way and will use my 4x4 truck in order to gain better access to the logging roads for the approach. Transportation costs will be based on the BCMC Guidelines (https://bcmc.ca/club_driver_guidelines.php).
