Hike up to Mountain Lake Hut to climb the surrounding mountains. Mount Sheer will likely be the first on the list as it's extremely close to the hut, but other objectives include the Bens (Vorlich, Avon, Lui, More and Lomond) and Red Mtn too. The approach is roughly a 5 hour non technical day hike but fairly strenuous in nature as we pick up elevation fast, it may also require the use of an ice axe depending on weather. Map of the Area: Enx=Mtn&EnxId=587&LinkType=Point&DLat=49.59722&DLng= 123.05861 Mountain Lake Hut:

Required Items to Bring:
Sleeping bag and overnight gear with lots of layers! Ice axe, cooking gear and two days worth of food, (there is no stove in the hut so that should be included in cooking gear too). Harness/Prusik cords and two lockers should be in your kit also, because you never know.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Helpful to bring a shovel in-case we need to dig out the entrance way to the hut.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Meet at Galileo's coffee shop on Hwy 99 at 9:00, and drive down the Furry Creek logging road together. The logging road needs a 4WD/AWD vehicle because it isn't in the greatest of conditions. Your forced to walk an extra 6-9km in otherwise and it's long, boring and only has the result of mass logging to look at. Gina has space for 6 people in her van, but if somebody else with an appropriate vehicle takes part we can increase the group size slightly.
Carpool to Event Distance (round trip):52Km
