Brohm Ridge provides direct access to Mount Garibaldi's northeast face and the Warren Glacier. While I don't intend to summit (unless other more experienced folks join and want to try - not even sure if it's doable this time of year) I would like to explore this area a little bit and maybe practice some glacier school skills in a beautiful setting.
The plan is to drive out Saturday morning and go as far up the approach FSR as we can. I can't find much info on the status of the gates and what shape the road is in so we may be starting at a low elevation depending on how many high clearance 4wd vehicles we have available. But we'll have most of the day to get to camp somewhere along the ridge, preferably right at the boundary with Garibaldi Provincial Park. The next day we can explore in the park, including wandering over to the nearby glacier. I'd like to practice some glacier skills and break in my brand new rope. If other people want to join for just the scenery and camping part sans glacier that's fine too. After we get our fill we'll then head back to the cars and then to town.
Participants on this trip should have all the necessary gear for a backpacking trip, including tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, etc. Be prepared to hike/camp on snow depending on the conditions. Anyone wanting to walk onto the glacier will need to have all the necessary equipment, such as crampons, ice axe, harness, rope, etc and ideally have completed glacier school, though I'm not going to formally require it as we'll just be practicing on whatever mellow terrain we can find.
Feel free to send me an email with any questions!
