The Sinister Plan

Calling all ghosts and goblins to the Second Annual Spooky Scramble! The plan is to scramble the North Summit of Baby Munday (2210m), and time permitting, attempt to summit Knight Peak and Stewart Peak on Oct 29th (in honour of Halloween), in costume! It's reportedly a fantastic scramble, with an elevation gain of 1330m, and roughly 8 hours round trip, depending on party speed. The scrambling has limited exposure, so beginners are welcome! We will of course take awesome costumed summit pictures.

Email any questions to Avery Gottfried, or post them on the message board.

Tricks and Treats

You should be reasonably fit and costumed. No points for 'Hiker' costumes - you will be assigned a mystery costume of shame should you come unprepared...

You'll also need a good pair of boots and a helmet is recommended, ice axes aren't required. Check the scramble day trip gear list, for other essential items.

A topo map of the area is available from The Atlas of Canada, map 92 H/4.

Witches' Gathering

The pre-trip meeting will take place during the VOC Gear Swap on Wednesday, October 26 @ 7pm, located in the Earth and Ocean Sciences (EOS) Main Lobby on UBC Campus (6339 Stores Road).

The Haunted Maze

The road is 2WD accessible, but does require an additional 3.9km walk + 540m elevation gain without 4WD.
