South Arete of Atwell Peak (Garibaldi Park)

Recommended Posts

I am interested in doing the South Arete of Atwell/traverse to Garibaldi summit as soon as weather window opens. Does anyone have information on current conditions? Would be much appreciated. . . .

a much more mellow, but probably in condition (in May) route is the N ridge of Atwell. check out a good photo in Bivouac.com, search under Atwell. Brohm Ridge approach is shorter than elfin lakes.

Dru, and wotan of ballard:

Thank you for the replies--was a bit concerned, especially in this low snow year. (Fears confirmed. . . unfortunately). Do either of you know about conditions for North Face of Dalton Dome/traverse to Garibaldi summit?

probably not in the greatest shape right now with a meter of slushy new not yet bonded. but give it a week or two and it might be good.

expect some partially open crevasses on the anniversary, and a lot of sloppy crud snow. I was up there a few wks ago and joffre glacier had some patches of blue ice showing in the seracs.

Dru:

Once again, thank you for the beta. Weather permitting, we may make the drive up on the weekend of the 18th, to take a closer look. If it looks good, we'll give it a go. And if we do, I'll give you the report.
