I've been told that the road up to Lady and Cheam is pretty badly waterbarred---not really 2WD accessible without walking 15km along a logging road, all the while being passed by 4wd vehicles. This would add a lot of time, and would probably increase general suffering without increasing general fun.

With that in mind, our new goal will be to scramble up Tricouni Peak. It should be very similar in difficulty level, but with less of an approach.

Tricouni is easily recognized from afar due to its appearance as a large bump with two adjacent horns. Of course, we'll be able to see a long long ways. We'll see the entirety of the Alcoholic Route up north, including Brew, Cypress, and Fee. We'll see Icecap and Pikett to the west, Cloudburst, and the Tantalus Range to the south, and the Fitzsimmons Range to the East.

This trip involves scrambling. That means that it'll be a little harder than your average hike in the woods. But I promise that you'll have a lot of fun, and it's completely fine if you've never been scrambling before.

If you've got any burning questions, or if you're not sure if this is the trip for you (it is!), send me an e-mail at [email protected], and I'll get back to you as fast as I can.
