Participant Information


Please answer all of of the questions in the BC Covid-19 Symptom Self Assessment Tool questionnaire found here:  https://bc.thrive.health/covid19/en.  You will be required to provide your results in the screening questions.  My results are:  "You don’t appear to have symptoms of COVID-19".

Expect a shortish but difficult hike through forest; upper portions of the trail are likely to be muddy/snowy.

Summit scramble route is accessed via snowfield. It is only about 40m wide, but steep enough that a short slip can result in injury. It would be prudent to bring crampons and an ice axe.

Moderately difficult scramble up to the summit: helmet recommended. Likely to be significant snow on the upper scrambling section as well.

Time permitting, a second visit to Nak Peak may be possible.
