Description:

With Roland Burton's blessing I am organizing my first trip.

The plan is to leave Vancouver around 7am on Saturday, hike up to the Wedgemount lake, set up camp at the premium Wedgemount campsites next to the lake and explore the area. I’m a slow hiker, so beginners please don’t hesitate to join.

The main objective will be Mount Weart (2,822m), which I’ve never done before, but I hear that the views are amazing (like that entire area really). It’s a moderate scramble but shouldn’t be too difficult. If at any point we don’t feel safe, we will turn around. We won’t be crossing any glaciers, but because our winter was so generous this year you can expect to see some snow, so microspikes would be a good idea if you have them, maybe an ice axe for stability and for photos.

The hike up to the campsite is steep, but so worth the pain.

If you have any questions please email me.

The pre-trip meeting location and time will be posted closer to the time of the event.
