Participant Information

Fast & Light Scramble up steep slopes via the Twin One FSR: leave Friday for a Car Camp before a long Saturday involving some moderate bushwhacking. The FSR is in good shape; a 2wd should suffice.


Watching the weather - if it does not improve, an alternate location (eg: Coquihala, Fraser Canyon, or Manning Park areas) will be discussed with participants. 

  • This is a scramble, and not a trail hike, so bring your brain bucket.
  • Ice axe and crampons 'may' be needed/desired for the section of pocket glacier travel, although I expect soft snow for the little that remains. They could be considered optional given how late in the season this is
  • A rope is optional for rappelling the summit gap, for those wanting to tag the 2nd summit; to be discussed in planning forum.

Participants should be:

  • experienced, capable, and well-equipped for backcountry travel.  
  • in excellent physical condition and can finish the Grind or 10 km run <60 mins (this a 'fast & light' trip)
  • able to Lead the trip; Please do the research; at least for your own safety, if for no other reason
  • a team player ready and willing to contribute to a successful trip and a fun group experience

Glamping is certainly welcome for the Friday night car camp, and we'll decide in the forum if making it a 2 nighter with a 2nd peak, on Sunday. If we do extend it, Sunday will be a shorter & easier day so we get back to the city for dinner-ish. 

Thanks for your interest
