The plan is to investigate 3 future Route options:

1. Lower Route
A route that goes just above the section that was destroyed in the landslide needs to be explored. The plan at present would be to start near the corner with the Lillooet River valley and Meager Creek the route would then go up gently above the cliffs directly opposite Capricorn Creek and then link up with the previously bushwhacked section in the existing clear cut.

2. Upper Route
The plan would be to essentially start bushwhacking a trail from the highest western most switchback above where the lower route splits off. The route would contour over to the top of an adjacent logging road north of the creek that drain Pika Peak and Uriah's Heap.

3. Possible Route to hut
The third and final led would be to investigate the route that goes up the ridge north of Barr Creek from the logging roads that come out of the Meager Creek valley. There are 2 options for this way and ideally both would be explored. The route connecting with the #2 High route would also need to be investigated to determine if using the existing logging roads or putting in a new line is most advantageous.
