Note: The date of this trip is dependant on snow cover and weather.  If heavy rainfall is in the forecast, we'll push it back a week.  If there's still snow in August, we'll push it back a month.

There are several areas around Phelix Hut, peppered with granite boulders.  The plateau below Mt. Aragorn looks particularly attractive, but the boulder fields near the hut, and behind Cabin Hill also look pretty good.  There's no bouldering guidebook for the area... let's write one!

We'll be travelling in most unusual fashion.  Boulderers, best known for unwillingness to walk more than 15 minutes, are not often found anywhere in the Coast Mountains.  We'll break this tradition, and carry bouldering pads with our overnight gear to the hut.  From there, we'll head to the various bouldery areas with pens, and pads, and pads.

We'll be friendly to beginners on this trip.  All skill levels are welcome.  But I do strongly recommend trying bouldering beforehand, before hiking several hours for bouldering of unknown quality.

If it turns out that the bouldering is hard, or our hands hurt, we'll go peak bagging.
