Default Boulder NW1,Boulder Peaks-September 27,2015

We left Vancouer around 3.30 AM,got our breakfast in Pemberton and kept going to Gott creek road.
Drove only around 1 km,got stopped by a waterbar too big for a 2wd car.

Around at 4 km there is a sharp left fork that we took,at the next fork we took the right fork,where if you have a 4x4 you should be ok to drive to this spot without any problems,and from there the road is still good,but just got lots of small trees in the middle.
At the next fork we went right again and soon we got to the creek and the higher cutblock.
From here we went up following the creek and kept going a bit right from time to time,ok terrain just a bit steep.

After few minutes of steep climbing we got on the ridge and traversed first tower on the right side and after that stayed on the ridge pretty much all the time,nothing too bad,class 2 max I will say.

We spent only few minutes on the summit and went down,a long way to the car.

When I went there for bagging Rusell, Blue Jay, Michelle and Elusive few years ago, my Jeep worked very well. I still did not finish Wonder and Boulder Peaks.
Your trip report reminds me the beautifle area.
