Participant Information

This is a very underrated area and this would be my third time forey there, albeit I've never managed to get to the top of Gillespie, as I've always went first to Seed Peak and weather moved in...So let's try to go first to Gillespie:)

The last 2-4km might require 4x4, but there was some fresh logging this past winter/last summer so I suspect the road can be done in a regular AWD as well. Will figure out if some minor car shuttle is required or not:)

Please be considerate and do not sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are in very good physical condition. If you never hiked with me, you must contact me before signing up!

Will be moving at a moderate/fast pace. Not for slow people, sorry.

MUST have :

  • Food and water for the whole day
  • First aid kit!
  • Helmet
  • boot crampons or microspikes!!
  • Headlamp with spare batteries
  • Ice axe
Distance: 12km
Elevation Gain: 900m
Summit area 2021m
Estimated Time: 5-6hrs
