Intrigued by the post above about the plane crash, I've had Mt. Baldwin on the radar as a trip to do and hopefully find the wreckage. With the Stawamus road being in quite good condition and not much...

I agree. I understand the need for advertising and don't really mind when it's actually related to the topic. I occasionally pop in and read reports without signing in and am always surprised by the...

Congratulations! This definitely deserves it's own post rather than as a footnote! That's a very impressive time. Definitely ups the ante for the ultra-running crowd.

Thanks man. Here on the Coast? Almost always no. We would use one for crossing unavoidable crevasses or moats but our usual strategy is to avoid them rather than try to cross. Part of our planning...

TheMagBumper - with certainty? I guess not. There are pretty strong signs though. Crevasses indicate you are on ice. Rocks poking through the snow indicate rocks. That being said, you can be very...

oldmatt - The only glacier ice we were on was on the lower Helm and it's pretty flat. Other than that, we were on snow. We used the little Petzl dyneema crampons and axes for the steeper snow.

I was last up there mid-July. The road was open but there was a washout at 4km that was getting a bit tricky but passable. Another washout just before the Holly Lake Trail spur turnoff was much more...

Garibaldi Lake Circumnavigation

Nick and I ran around Garibaldi Lake yesterday (Aug 16, 2017). We started from Rubble Creek TH and headed up to the Cinder Flats and turning up Helm Creek to get to the Glacier. We had to cross a few...

I drove to the bridge-out on the Paradise Creek Road last week no problem with a Ford Escape. Nothing worse that what you encounter on the climb up the Hurley.

2wd access to Sigurd Trail - easy peasy.

The next bridge crossing Ashlu Cr however is out and the road not drivable beyond that.

Lots of Downton reports lately it seems so just a quick one. I drove up BR2 road. The washout at ~3k from the highway is still passable but deteriorating from last fall. The avalanche blocking the...

Agreed - totally possible to do interesting loops with pretty minimal out-back sections but I was being picky ;) I'd still say that one of the cool things about the area would be able to cross a lot...

Running/Fastpacking in the South Chilcotins (July 2017)

I've been aware of the South Chilcotins as a destination for a few years but decided to prioritize it this season. My hope was to be able to do some long running loops in the mountains but without...

Lythe - wow - that is lighter... even the S2S Mesh Tent is quite a bit less than the MSR. I'm on the fence about the floor-less design but suspect that it would be fine for the areas I'll be. Thanks...

Thanks. Looks a bit cheaper than the MSR option and possibly a bit more robust in a storm but 300g heavier (and can't be carried by two people).
