Come join me for a 3-day hike (with mild scrambling) to the five peaks along the NE ridge from Gott (the Bivouac named Beatles peaks). I have Tuesday off so if others are willing, we could stay one day and add on a day hike to Kidney Lakes from Blowdown Lake. Please email for more details, arranging carpooling or any questions. Itinerary Saturday 7:30am depart from downtown Vancouver, drive to Blowdown Pass, hike to a tarn past Gott, set up camp. Sunday - with day packs continue along the ridge over the four peaks to Taxman, Marmot Gardens or as far as the group likes before heading back to camp. Hike out and return to Vancouver Monday night. Or stay one more night, camping at Blowdown Lake and dayhiking to Kidney Lakes before returning to Vancouver Tuesday night.
