FYI Panorama Ridge is easily accessed in spite of a few remaining patches of snow on past Helm Pass.

Yeah nvm it was on the north summit, not the west as I had incorrectly assumed. Didn't wanna mess with bcmc's rythym so left it up there for them. Just a sling anyway, sure other people will use it. Conditions up there were great. Long 2nd day climbing CT from Gentian Ridge (not the meadow camp. On our way back over the ridge it started pouring down, lightning was getting close.... not a comfortable feeling when you are exposed on a ridgeline with a metal axe strapped to your back. Ended up descending after temporarily losing sight of our camp (we cut under the ridgeline to avoid the heaviest winds and thus traversed below our camp and overshot it). From helm camp we made it back to the car in 2 hrs 15, not bad time for that leg but we still rolled in at 915 pm! Epic day, love getting a little deeper into Garibaldi.

I heard it is a loooong way in there. Is there a heli-pad? I would like to one day fly in, camp for a few days and walk down and out. is that possible?

Jerry,I don't think they allow helicopters to land in the park unless it's a rescue. You can fly in to Lake Lovely Water,then hike out and get picked up by a boat That way,you'd get all the wishes in one shot

I'll send you a pm

We were looking for your large group at the lake so we missed you. We returned via the old route down the ridge with a few interesting creek crossings.
Here's a shot from the ridge and the route sign on the old trail.

thanks, No Quitting! Such a beautiful place. I really want to go but elevation gain is not my friend. I pull hammy's a lot; even with all the magnesium bananas, supplements and all. I fear it would really toss a wrench in my trip. I would stress about it the whole way up knowing I was going to suffer when I finally stopped. Maybe I could go in two days up, stay three days, and two days back down.

It's been done by float plane..but that was a long time ago! I've always found the hike out to feel a LOT longer than the hike in.
