Do you have a 4x4? How many people can you carry?

Participant Information

Note: Date changed.  Apparently the access is quite bushy, so waiting until late summer.

Ben Lomond is a rock horn in the Mountain Lake area, above Furry Creek.  Helmets are mandatory for the trip.

I'm hoping to be able to ascend Red Mountain as well on the trip. 

4x4s are needed to reach the trailhead.  I can carry myself + 4, and additional participants will be confirmed if others with 4x4s sign up for the trip.  Due to rules regarding obtaining the key to the furry creek road, the trip is limited to BCMC members only.  My understanding is that the road was in good shape last year, and I'm hoping to find the road in good shape this year.
