Participant Information

Meet Friday after work, drive up to top of Squamish river valley. Car camp. Saturday will use power tools to clear last 400m of overgrown logging road. If time, explore first part of route through old growth.

For trail clearing on Saturday, will probably split into two groups, one to clear rest of logging road, and one to go further ahead into old growth, finding best route, and probably clearing devil's club on slidepaths and maybe hacksaw some logs if needed. 

Sunday, logging road trail will be clear, so can head further into old growth to map out best route around base of Little Ring Peak to the Pemberton Icefield.

NOTE: I am OFF THE GRID until 29th September, so will not be able to approve people for trip until then. Please wait until then for confirmation!
