|Mount Slalok (Rex's Pillar) via Stonecrop Face
Slalok is the third highest peak in the Joffre
Group at 2650 meters. We will ascend via the
Stonecrop Face Route (PD) as described in
Alpine Select. From the summit we'll have
impressive views of Matier, Joffre and the
We'll travel in on Saturday morning and set up
camp with a leisurely afternoon to prep our
gear, practice skills if we want, and rest up
for Sunday morning's summit push.
The approach will be via the 5.5 km Upper
Joffre Lake trail, which takes us through the
forest past three lakes, each one more scenic
that the last. We'll camp somewhere above the
third lake (backcountry permit required).
Sunday morning will be an alpine start at
approximately 3 AM. The route follows Tzsil
Creek until we reach a wide easy coulour, which
climbs past rock bands to the toe of the
Stonecrop Glacier. Depending on conditions, we
expect to follow an open, moderate line on
slopes of up to 45 degrees.
Descent will be via either same route or along
the west ridge (Class 3 scramble) to the
moraine and back to Tzsil Creek. We'll pack up
camp and hike out. We expect to be back in
Vancouver on Sunday evening|
