Memaloose is a partially treed summit to the
northwest of the Manning Park ski hill. The
approach we'll be taking starts and ends on a
trail but in between we'll be doing easy (i.e.
not dense trees) bushwacking and route-finding
to the summit.
We'll park at the Allison Works yard at the
pass (1340m elevation). The route starts out
along a flat trail for about 5km, then we'll
turn off the trail and rise steeply about
another 2km, bushwacking (reportedly there is
some flagging but we won't rely on that) and
trail-breaking up to the ridge where it’s up
and down to the 1945m summit, return the same
way. Expect about 7 hours total hiking (plus 2
hours driving each way). We’ll be leaving
downtown Vancouver at 8am and can do carpooling
stops along the way (eg at skytrain stations).
I generally hike at the fast end of moderate,
but prefer folks to stick together, so
depending on the pace of the group, slower
people may have to speed up a little and faster
people may have to keep themselves in check.
The forecast is showing a mix of sun and cloud,
and I’m expecting the usual spring mix of
crusty and sloppy wet snow. Please sign up
only if you are 100% committed rain or shine.
People interested in talking about overnight
winter trips are especially welcome!
