It's scrambles season and the Wedgemount Lake area has a lot to offer!
The tentative plan is to head up to the campsite on Saturday, and depending on the time and energy level, we can explore the lake area or attempt one of the lesser scrambles. Then on Sunday we can do another scramble before heading home.
Of the scrambling options, Mt. Cook and Mt. Weart are the one's that I'm somewhat familiar with and understand to be reasonably accessible. Mt. Weart is more ambitious than Mt. Cook so, once again depending on the group, we could potentially split into two teams: a beginner group on Mt. Cook and a more advanced group on Mt. Weart.
I personally want to go for Mt. Weart as I did (part of) Mt. Cook last time I was there.
This trip is beginner friendly, but do note that participants need to be able to carry an overnight pack up steep sections of the trail.
Please also note, that while there is BCMC Hut at the campsite, it is fairly small and participants should plan on tenting in the likely case that the hut is already in use/full.
Details about gear will be discussed at the pre-trip.
If you have any questions or concerns about this trip/trail, please feel free to contact me [email protected] . I’m friendly!
