Four of us are doing this traverse as a self- contained unit. Other self-contained unit(s) of 2-4 experienced members will be considered. This is a difficult trip and should not be underestimated. Although the climbing grades are quite tame at low to mid 5th levels, the route demands intense physical effort and efficiency travelling over 3rd & 4th class terrain. Also, route-finding difficulties will most likely be encountered and may lead to an epic. For these reasons, we do not want to take on the responsibility of unknown members. However, if you are a party or find members on the wait list to partner with it could be good to have you come along.

Friday early morning departure and drive up the Chehailis FSR as far as possible (4wd-hc vehicle or 2wd and bikes). Hike into the bivvy 6-8 hours and camp.(overnight; tent sleeping bag stove or bivi gear required).
Saturday morning early start and complete the traverse back to bivvy 11-16hrs.
Sunday up early, pack up and hike out 6-8 hours and additional 3.5hrs drive back to Vancouver. For more info, see page 317 of Alpine Select, Climbs in Southwest BC book.
