Participant Information

Note: the number of participants is limited to 5 people due to the need for a HC 4x4 vehicle to get up the logging roads with deep cross-ditches (I can only take 5 people in my truck). Let me know if you have a suitable vehicle and I can increase the number of participants if more than 4 (plus me) sign-up.


Welch Peak via complete South Ridge... Another 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. Participants must bring a headlamp and a helmet as there is a fair amount of loose rock. No ropes will be used. The scrambling is likely best done in approach shoes with sticky rubber. 

We will meet at 05:50  ** leaving at 06:00 sharp ** at the Chevron on Boundary Road (3030 Boundary Rd, just south of Grandview) and will use my 4x4 truck (or anyone else's, if available) in order to gain better access up the logging roads for the approach. Transportation costs will be based on the BCMC Guidelines (https://bcmc.ca/club_driver_guidelines.php) -- rough estimate is $30 to $50 pp depending on number of participants.

Please update your BCMC Account Profile with your emergency contact information. To do that you have to login on the website, click the "My account" button at top right, then click on "edit profile information", then select the "private information" tab and enter your emergency contact information -- this info will stay in your profile and is made available to a trip organizer automatically -- it saves time at the meeting point.
