I wanted to do Brew for a while but always was thinking to approach it from Molybdenite creek.
So 5 of us (Michelle,Dave,Brian,Gordon and me) left North Vancouver at 6.30 PM,we got to Texas creek road around 11 PM and 3 of us stayed at the campsite at km 3.5,there is a small road on your right,and a small campsite,the other car that was in front of us and decided not to wait for us,went all the way up to the junction with Molybdenite road and slept there.
We all met at the junction of Texas creek and Molybdenite road,from where the 4x4 road starts.
Not that bad for a bit,but there is a steep section with boulders ,and you need to have a good 4x4,we managed to be ok with the stock Jeep.
We were able to drive to 1670m,second cutblock,where I planned to start from,and squeezed our cars on the side of the road,and after looking at maps we started our way up,pretty much straight up,there is a easy rock face,not too steep .
our starting point
5 minutes of bushes then we found some boulders after what we just kept on climbing straight up,looking for the best route,and when I saw the ridge getting closer just decided to traverse instead of climbing,pretty easy terrain,just a bit loose rocks.
at the end of the boulders we went right
From the ridge we could see Towinock Peak,and most of the group were excited,but I knew they won't be that excited when we will get on top of Towinock and see the route to Mount Brew.
Brian was feeling a bit sick and he turned back,so now 4 of us were going up the ridge to Towinock col.
The ridge to Towinock col
From the col,it's a easy hike up to Towinock peak,but again loose rocks.
The ridge going to Towinock Peak
Once we got on top of the ridge to Towinock it's a huge almost flat area that goes to the summit of Towinock.
Great view from the summit,we had a small lunch brake and couldn't stop looking at the snowy Brew that looked so far away.

The ridge to Mount Brew from Towinock
After few minutes on the summit of Towinock,we started our way to Towinock N4 and slowly,slowly the group was getting further and further back,but I tried not to go too far so I can keep eye contact with them.
Looking back to Towinock
easy ridge to Towinock N4,had to build a summit carn,see where the group is and keep on going,I was getting excited every minute,Mount Brew was getting closer and closer.
From Towinock N4,the ridge again goes down a bit and there is a small tower that on the way to Brew I traversed on the left side,very loose terrain and on the way back decided to take the tower(just stay on the ridge) and wasn't that bad.
Mount Brew from Towinock N4
No I was just minutes away from summit of Mount Brew,looked back to see the where the rest of the group is,could see only Michelle and Dave.
Got on the top of Mount Brew,had some food and found the summit register,put our names and waited for the rest of the group.

Few minutes later Dave and Michelle made it to the summit and I told them that I want to go to Enterprise Peak too but they decided to spend some time on the summit and go back down.
So I start running down from Mount Brew to the ridge to Enterprise Peak.
A narrow and very loose ridge,but easy to travel,before the summit there are some towers that didn't looked that friendly so I just passed them on the left side.
Mount Brew from Enterprise Peak
Got on top of Enterprise,had to do another cairn and run back to catch up with Michelle and Dave.
I got close to Michelle and Dave just a bit after Towinock N4 from where we kept on going together and we couldn't see Gordon anywhere in front of us and later he said that he turned back after getting on Towinock N4.
From Towinock N4 we had a long way back to the car.
While waiting for us Brian drove a bit higher and found a great camping spot just 1.5 km from where we parked,we were pretty happy to find that camping spot,with pads,washroom,the creek wasn't too far too,just perfect.
In the end it was a great day out there,beautiful scenery,finally got up on this one after looking so many times from nearby peaks,and I was happy to share my day with my friends.
