Participant Information

Elevation gain: 1300m. Distance: Roughly 17km. Pace: Fast hiking. Time: Planning for 10-11hrs total.

The scrambles book lists the ascent time as 5-7hrs, and I'm hoping to be up in no more than 5hrs, to give a sense of the pace, but allowing for a good amount of time on the summit though, as the forecast looks excellent. planning to move fairly quickly and efficiently thru the boulderfields. Probably stopping for a dip at some point. I've been partway to the peak and was turned around by fresh snow. Expect boulder fields, some loose rock, and the usual off-trail travel, as well as some routefinding.

If anyone would like to meet behind St Davids Church before leaving Vancouver to touch base, I will be there at 5am. Otherwise we will meet at the highway maintenance yard that is 250m past the Marriott turnoff. We can carpool from there up the high clearance road if need be.
