Participant Information

Drive up Squamish river valley to headwaters. Follow trail up to Little Ring Peak (dramatic volcanic plug like Black Tusk). Fantastic views of glacier on edge of Pemberton Icefield.

Hike down into valley below glacier. Lots of interesting lakes and basecamp options. Possible peaks are Callaghan N3, Numbers, and Torah.

Friday night car camping would be a good option.
