Looking for more technical scrambles in Southern BC
Hi, I live in Penticton and I've recently gotten more into scrambles. So far I've done:
- Brunswick Mountain (near Lions Bay)
- Needle Peak, Yak and Nak Peak, Vicuna Peak (in Coquihalla Summit Recreational Area near Hope, mostly Class 3 but with some Class 4 sections)
- Gimli Peak (Valhalla Provincial Park, near Slocan)
I am very interested in doing more technical and difficult scrambles. There's a book "Scrambles in SW BC" by Matt Gunn that I cannot seem to find a copy of, so I am a little stuck. There are other books such as "Scrambles in the Rockies", but most of the mountains in that book are 6-10 hours away from me.
Can you recommend any good, technical scrambles for someone who is looking to improve their technical skills that are 4-5 hours or less from Penticton? Thanks!
