Meslilloet is low enough that all fresh snow should have melted but high enough to have a glacier and views of rarely seen areas. The route is to walk up the Mamquam logging roads from as far as we can drive (currently the Seed Pk junction I believe) and at the end of the spur road, pick up a flagged route through the bush to get up on the Dunkeld plateau. Where we camp will depend, but there's a lake I've got in mind 3km east of Dunkeld Pk that would be about 10km and 1000m gain total for Day 1. Day 2 we'd daytrip up the peak, it's around 12km roundtrip and 1200m cumulative gain. Meslilliet NE1 would be a consolation prize but reportedly we can get to the E Ridge and to the true summit without glacier travel and some Class 3 scrambling near the summit, though the whole trip will be routefinding and potentially rugged terrain. Im planning for up 8-11hrs a day including breaks. Day 3 we would head back to the cars from our camp and there'll be about 500m gain that day. There may be the option to summit Dunkeld on our way out if it works out.

There's limited beta out there and I'd like to preserve the sense of adventure by keeping gps use to a minimum and not geotagging, but please do some research so you are familiar with the approach/route.

We can carpool up the logging road if people wish. If so we'll need to figure out where to leave vehicles in squamish.

Pace will be average or faster than average ideally but is negotiable. Definitely stopping for lake dips if its sunny.

Im open to less experienced folks joining, but please give detailed responses to the screening questions if so.
