Trip Planning Questions

Do you have a vehicle?

Participant Information

Macdonald Peak and Mt. Webb lie above Radium Lake in the Chilliwack River Valley.  The elevation gain to Macdonald peak is 1667m, and adding Mt. Webb to the day adds another 260m of elevation gain, so please be prepared for a day of approximately 2000m of elevation gain.

Ice axe and helmet are mandatory.  Crampons are advised, although I suspect will not be needed.

To give ourselves enough time to climb both peaks, we'll leave fairly early, leaving Braid Skytrain station at 6:30.  Note that this is before the first skytrain arrives there on Saturday.  It is up to trip participants to arrange their own carrides and transport to the station.  If you live in the valley, you can meet us at the trailhead
