Description:

 Location Change! (Due to Weather) Now it's Mt. Laughington in Chilliwack!

Hey guys, 

I've fallen in love with the Coquihalla/Manning Park region and I'd like to head there to ascend Mt. Outram if conditons are good!

 

A bit on Mt. Outram (J. Baldwin):

"1 day trip, 18km roundtrip with elevation gain 1770m, difficulty rating of 3 and challenging terrain."

In light of recent instabilities and reports in the Coquihalla I wish to plan a conservative approach and a very conservative descent as well. 

There's a high pressure system coming in so hopefully we'll have clear skies but cold temperatures!

For these reasons I think this is a INTERMEDIATE FRIENDLY TRIP. Backcountry skills are a must and avi skills as well!

 

3 Options to be discussed at the pre-trip: 

1) Leave Vancouver very very early.

2) Leave the night before and camp at the trailhead for an early start. 

3) An overnight trip of 2 full days.

 

**Note: I'd like to limit the group size to two car loads. Post on the message board for any questions/concerns.

It'll be an awesome weekend !! :)

Cheers,
