Route at a Glance

Rating Map Refs Road Route Start Elevation High Point Technical Notes
Intermediate 92 G/14 7km/3.5hrs 5km/4.5hrs 90m 1870m Long day/Overnight

Access

Turn onto Squamish River Road from highway 99 (0km). Take the Squamish River Road for 26km to a branch just past the Weldwood Workyard. Branch road BR-100 begins here and depending on the snow level, this road can sometimes be driven to about 900m.

Route

Ski BR-100 to the Microwave station on a small knoll at 900m then head up through a mature forest, staying to the left of the first cliffs. Ascend the steep forested slope just before a prominent rockslide and then take the SW ridge to the summit. Good campsites can be found at or just below the treeline.

Hazards

  1. Some steep slopes off summit ridges; however, these can be avoided
