Current Conditions Friday, August 03, 2007

Has anyone been up that way recently? Is the last section of road still drivable? Have any parties been out to cut back the alder/salmonberry portion of the trail?

The new weather station should be online by the end of August. This should give us better forecasting and current weather readings.

Hike to the Summit of Mt. VarleyHike to the Summit of Mt. Varley
Alert / Warning Wednesday, August 15, 2007

Take Canfor 5411 off Rainy River FSR. Pass through the mill security gate (where your license, destination, and estimated return time are noted) and head up the road 6-8km until you cross a bridge and come to a road on your right with a number of large rusty culverts opposite. If you have a nice little short, jacked-up 4wd with good tires (and know how to drive it) you can probably get through a number of ditches and creeks and past the pipeline ROW that heads to Box Canyon Creek. Otherwise, park and start walking. You can get to the cutblock near the end of the road in 1-1.5 hrs. The road takes a sharp bend at the bottom right of the cutblock and continues left, but enter the cutblock at this point near the right edge and within earshot of the creek. Pick your way up the cutblock into the mature trees above (about 20 minutes) and continue heading up. Once in the mature trees it's fairly easy to stay in open terrain by keeping the creek on your right within earshot. As you gain elevation the vegetation becomes a bit bushier and you start to encounter heather and blueberry, which make convenient handholds up steep sections. 20-40 minutes after leaving the top of the cutblock you will start to see open views beyond the trees to your left. Start trending this way a little, looking for easier ankle-high-heather slopes, and within a few minutes you should pop out onto a little (probably snow-covered) southwest ridge. From here you can detour along the ridge (5 minutes) for a dramatic view into the Rainy River valley and peaks in the Tet Plateau, or head straight for the summit. The summit route is obvious from this ridge and you can choose combinations of heather, rock and snow. It's less than an hour to the summit from the ridge.

This is an awesome little route - easier and quicker than you'd think despite the lack of trail/markers - and rewards you with spectacular views which, unlike peaks in the Tet Plateau, are completely unobstructed. Highly recommended for intermediate/strong hikers who have some familiarity with route-finding in the bush. Have a look at the 1:50,000 government map - it shows this road in the right place. The 1:20,000 map from Clover Point is a bit off - the road takes a sharp bend at the wrong drainage. If you're using this map know that the drainage that you'll be keeping within earshot for most of the route is the steepest one coming from the southwest bowl. Count on 6-7 hrs return from car if you've had to park at the junction of Canfor 5411 and Rainy River FSR.

Alert / Warning Thursday, August 23, 2007

Still no word on road improvements will be done for this year. It appears that it may not happen. It is also unclear if road will be plowed this year. Snow is only around 2 months away. We can expect snow on ridge around middle to end of Oct.
