Participant Information

The scramble up the west ridge of Ossa is a straightforward moderate route, with one short, difficult notch below the summit. 

Elevation gain on first day: 2200m.


Meet early. Anyone coming from Vancouver will meet at St. David's. If anyone is already in the sea to sky area, we will meet them in Squamish.

Hike in. Set up camp by the trio of lakes described in Matt Gunn's scrambles, continue to the summit. Celebrate. Return to camp for some freeze dried nutrition and other backpacking delights.


Hike out, have lunch in Squamish

Note: this trip will require good fitness and confidence while moving on exposed 4th class terrain.
