10km ski approach may take its toll on your partner and he would prefer to snowmobile in

the route actually looked like it was "in"...good luck getting to it though!

 

we had the key to the gate so the 10km ski turned into an 8km drive before the road got too rough for a passenger car. the problem with getting to the climb is that now all the snow in the valley bottom has melted out and the last 2km of the road is TOTALLY overgrown with slide alder. warm temps and rain on/off was inducing a lot of wet snow sliding off the surrounding peaks, Zero Gully looked good though and nothing was falling on the route directly. we decided that the weather was crappy, the snow wouldnt likely be much better, there was something of a safety issue to consider, and no one wanted anything to do with 2km of bushwacking through wet slide alder. so we went to Squamish instead...but thats another trip report. wink.gif

Said elderly climber would like to make another attempt on this same route this weekend. We'll have the key to the gate and try to drive as far as possible. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Ditto, he's still after this or other snow routes near Hope. If interested in climbing (or approaching) such routes with a veteran alpinist, give a PM or email.
