Participant Information

Outrigger Peak is located 4 km southeast of Mount John Clarke.

Trip date is Sunday, May 29th. Early start from West Van due to the long drive up logging roads.

Approach from G-500 road. If there's time and inclination, we could do a loop by descending Outrigger to Deserted N1 and exit via Bierman Creek. The loop option is dependent upon the party, avalanche conditions and snow cover at lower elevations.

Please contact me by email at pkubik@telus.net prior to Saturday evening.

Outrigger only option is B3. Combined with Deserted N1 it might just be a C3. The C4 comes in descending from Outrigger into Bierman headwaters. The slope angle may be around 40 degrees for a short distance.

Probably back in Vancouver by 8 PM for the longer option. A bit earlier for Outrigger only.
