Trip Planning Questions

Will you be well-researched enough to lead/hike on your own if you had to?

Preference to drive or not?

Is summiting the area's peaks a priority or is a more laid back, slow pace preferred?

Participant Information

This is an area many - myself included - would never have considered if not for the Scrambles in SWBC book. I’m approaching it like a mid-week mini-camp of sorts, with moderate-to-high peak bagging opportunities and enough time for also smelling the roses. We might decide to camp near the cabin for a few nights, but can also push in deeper for the middle night toward the beautiful Tundra Lake.

There are several relatively straightforward summits accessible from the Lizzie Lake area and the goal is to summit a good number of them all over the 3 ½ days we’re there, however participants are welcome to take a slower pace if desired. A sample itinerary is getting up the nine peaks listed in the book.

Day 1 is primarily getting up to camp and set up; maybe one of the closer peaks too. Days 2 and 3 should see us summit multiple peaks as several are relatively close to each other. 

GPS routes will be shared, however consult Matt Gunn’s descriptions on pages 218 - 232 for details. There are also several online trip reports.

Logistics details will develop in the forum. Please only sign up if you are committed, capable and appropriately equipped. Should weather or conditions become a concern, alternative locations will be considered.

Mostly hiking with some minor, low exposure scrambling. Rating as B2 due to route finding being challenging at times
