Write Up:
Marilyn Friedmann and I hiked up the BCMC and on up to Goat Mountain on Friday May 30 which was a fine day with puffy clouds and sun. Around where we crossed near the Zip Line the snow was still quite deep on the ground. At that time in the morning it was still icy in parts and further up we donned out crampons. The climb had intermittent parts without snow as it was melting in the south facing gullies. By the time we reached to top the snow was softening up somewhat. We enjoyed our lunch and great views of Crown, Camel and back towards UBC, etc. together with a Raven couple. We took our time, enjoyed our conversation and the day, so from the carpark up BCMC to Goat Peek and return to the car accessing the gondola down took us just 6 1/2 hours. Gillian Palejko
