This road is not plowed in the winter.
Cross the creek on a logging road bridge and head NE through the forest (staying on the left of the creek). Continue NE when the creek swings SE; and then up to a ridge (1680m) above a minor lake east of Mamquam. Drop down to the lake and head up an obvious gully which exits at the edge of the ice-field. Skirt Delusion Peak (aptly named) to Mamquam behind. It is possible to ski to within a few meters of the summit.
- Possible avalanche and falling ice on approach to icefields.
- The glacier is heavily crevassed.
- Creeks dangerously high in late spring
