Participant Information

This will be backpacking 2-nighter hike from Brandywine to Cypress. The route is about 24km with 1800m elevation gain. The scrambling portion will include summits of Brandywine and Cypress peaks.


Please research the route and be prepared to help navigating.

Mountain weather tends to change quickly so be sure to bring a headlamp, sufficient food, warm clothing and rain gear. I would also recommend bringing an ice axe and helmet. Expect to be self-sufficient with camping and cooking gear. 

The mapped route starts at the lower Brandywine parking lot. If people have high clearance vehicles, we can start from 400m higher. Since this is a traverse, car shuttling is required, hence the trip is mostly suitable for participants comfortable with carpooling.
