Participant Information

The plan is to head into trail head near  foley lake  SE of Chilliwack Friday morning.

We will hike up into Williamson lake  , and set up camp. 2-3 hours depending on road access.

I haven't been in there in many years, so we may have to hike some of the road.

If time permits we may take a stab at Welch Friday afternoon  and possibly Foley peak on Saturday before packing out.

Welch is  the primary target , Foleys a maybe.

Ill be leaving from Port Coquitlam and can take 2 possibly 3 people.

People coming from vancouver ( if any)

will need to arrange transportation from there.

This trip appears to have significant exposure , as such Im asking that everyone brings a harness , belay / rappel device in case we decide to simul climb and place pro.Ill bring a 30 meter rope.Youll need crampons and an ice axe incase there's remnant snow.


Im hoping someone else can bring a 30 meter. ( I have 2 other ropes if required)
