This is a very strenuous hike along not well-established trails from
sea-level to the lake Lovelywater (1173m). We will depart at the
classic St. David's United church carpool and head for Squamish,
have arranged for a local boat operator named Paul to ferry us
across the river to the Tantalus side. I had planned for the tyrolean
approach but have found that the cable towers are now
surrounded by a barbed wire fence. Paul has a key to the gate
down the road to the cable crossing, and will allow us to park
behind the gate for the weekend. That being said, if we could
minimize the number of cars required to two it would be ideal.
Once we have crossed the river, we will follow the trail up to the
lake, based off a GPS track I have. Once at the lake Saturday we
can set up tents and make dinner. (I know, there's a hut, but
camping is much nicer in this weather).
Sunday, we have the option of hanging around the lake, or if
everyone's up for it we can feel out a scramble. I'll bring a
scrambling book, but nothing requiring ropes, harness, ice axe or
crampons will be attempted. A climbing helmet is recommended
Monday we can pack up camp for 8 and head down to meet Paul
for the return river crossing for 12. This way, we can ideally still
have some of Monday afternoon left by the time everyone arrives
If you'd like to share a tent/camp equipment, send me an email
and I can direct you to a 'carpool' website I've set up where we
can arrange what equipment we can share.
