Description:

Seems like everyone thinks that ski season is over, and are going rock climbing, but I am not ready to put my skis away yet, therefor I hope that someone will join me on a mission to Cheam Peak.

Cheam Peak dominates the Fraser Valley, rising above Bridal Falls and Agassiz just east of Chilliwack. The rarely climbed north face plunges 2000m down to the Trans Canada Highway, while an easy trail leads to the summit from the subalpine bowl to the southwest. (bivouac)


The plan is to access the peak from the Chilliwack Lake road, follwing logging roads and the 'easy trail' to the alpine bowl, where we will access the SW ridge. The ridge is rated as class 2-3, but might be harder with snow. There is a large chance that I will not do the ridge, as it is going to be really warm and mushy. Alternatively we can climb Archibald. The total distamce is around 13 km and the elevation gain around 1300 m (depending on snow level). Weather looks sunny and hot... it should be great.
