Access

About 2km north of Green Lake on the east side of highway 99, a railway bridge and a logging road both cross the Green River. Usually this road is snowed in and vehicles must be parked on the shoulder of the highway.

Route

Follow the logging road across the Green River, then take the major right hand forks which lead to about 1200m on Rethel Creek. Follow the creek to an open, flat area just west of the Wedge-Parkhurst col, where good campsites abound. From here Wedge or Parkhurst Col, can be scrambled up, or ski tours made over the col towards Mount Weart or Eureka. The Wedgemount Hut is located on the west side of Wedgemount Lake

Hazards

  1. Some avalanche hazard between upper Rethel Creek and the col.
  2. Crevasses on Wedgemount and Weart Glacier
