Description:

I am interested in some scrambles around the Watersprite Lake. Hopefully the snow melts enough by this time to have a full view on the blue lake and some snow free rock to scramble upon.

The BCMC has built a hut in this area and upgraded the trail so it seems like an area to check out! The only problem with the access is that you need a high clearance vehicle to drive to the trail head because the road is fairly rough.

The idea is to depart Vancouver on Saturday morning, drive up to the trail head and it will take about 3-5 hrs to hike to the lake. We will bring tents because I don’t want to take over the entire hut with a big group. If there is enough time left in the day we can explore around the lake and have a backcountry feast (dessert potluck?). The next day we can scramble on the ridge on the South side of the lake which is apparently not too technical.

This is a beginner friendly trip meaning that no one will be left behind suffering. No guarantee that the trip will be easy.
