Description:

Want to get awesome views with some scrambling along the way to keep things interesting? I'm excited to do Needle Peak on the Coquihalla as I haven't recreated there yet. This will most likely involve snow on portions of the way, so ice axe and crampons should help us on the way to the summit.

How fit and experienced do I have to be? It's only 900 m, so nothing crazy from a fitness point, but you should have *some* experience in alpine terrain with easy scrambling to keep things safe and reasonably fast (days are getting shorter!). If in doubt, feel free to ask on the board or at the pretrip meeting.

 

Elevation gain: ca. 900 m

Distance: ca. 13 km
