** Vancouver Transit Info
Due to the poor weather forecast on Friday this trip has been
postponed by a day and will now go from Saturday to Monday. Due to
the Gran Fondo, this means an alpine start from Vancouver on
Saturday morning :-(
Statimcets is described in Matt Gunn’s
scrambles guidebook as Downton Creek Peak 8700.
This trip is suitable for people who want a
moderately paced trip and are comfortable with
scrambling. The trip will only go if the
weather forecast is good. Please be aware that
we’ve never been into this area before, so what
we find may not exactly match the route
