Participant Information

We will get a boat ride across the Squamish River at 7 am, hike to Echo Lake and then as time permits attempt to get around Echo Lake, travel to the nearby  Alec Lake and then on up to the 1700 m peak just north and Mt Murchison. Cost will be $30 per person for the boat ride  and payment will be required to be accepted on the trip. Return boat ride is 7 pm so this will be a full day with up to 11 hours of travel and 1700 m of vertical. There may be scrambling and an ice axe is recommended for travelling any snow covered areas.
