Meet at the Chevron on Boundary and 12th. Leave at 6.30. Drive out to Chilliwack Lake Rd that leads to Paulsen Rd (Turn Right) at the end of which is the trail for Radium Lk. Plan to start by 9am. Some routefinding and traversing snow slopes required to get to Macdonald's summit. Matt Gunn's "Scrambles" estimate for the assent is 5-6 hrs to Macdonald and 1 hr for Webb from the col. Webb promises to be an pleasant walk-up on gravel steps. Let's see if we have time for both. Hike down to aim for 6pm at cars. Maybe grab a bite to eat in Chilliwack and head home happy and satiated :)

Required Items to Bring:
boots, helmet, ice axe, personal first aid kit, water, food for the day (refer to "10 essentials")
