So crossing the Neve seems like not the best of ideas, but I like crossing things, so maybe this will work better.  We are not sure which direction we will be going yet, but we will have one car at the cheakamus lake parking lot and one at the rubble creek parking lot and then walk between them.

There are options of things to climb onthe way.  I would like to climb castle towers for sure and maybe black tusk if there is time/energy.

If possible we could hike up on friday night as well to set up the car shuttle and then hike up and camp at taylor meadows. Bring a headlamp.

These are not the most complicated scambles, but it will make for long days, so this is the tip for you if you enjoy hiking for 10-12 hours a day :-) I have never done this particular route or climbed these peaks, so some route finding might be needed.
