Camp at Tantalus Range: Photo by Clemens Adolphs.
Tantalus Range is a beautiful subrange of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains in southern British Columbia. The range is easily viewed from the "Sea to Sky Highway" that travels from Vancouver to Squamish and Whistler.
The plan is to:
Day 1: Hire a jetboat to cross Squamish River from Brackendale. Cost is approximately 50 dollars per person round trip with a minimum of 5 people. Hike trail to Lake Lovelywater and set up camps.
Day 2: From camp we have plenty of options: technical climbing and/or easier scrambling. Options are Alpha Mtn, Serratus Mtn, Mt Tantalus, Mt Niobe and Mt Pelops, Omega Mtn.
Day 3: Hike back to Squiamish river, cross the river by jetboat and heading back to Vancouver.
Trip plan is loose at the moment and really just based around getting a group over the river and up to Lake Lovelywater, so if anyone wants to organise a subgroup for technical climbing, that is fine by me.
I am planning to scramble Mt. Pelobs and Mt. Niobe. It is a moderate 2-star scramble by Matt Gunn. Other parties whjo would like to climb technical routes (like Alpha) are welcome to organize their own sub-objective.
More detail to come.
