      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

bad beta re: mt tatlow

Recommended Posts

back in november, there was a thread about "peak xxx" in the coast mountains. the peak is mt tatlow. i suggested that:


the mtn has sacred significance to the local indian population, and politeness indicates u shld give the band office a call before you head off to climb it:

chief roger william




this is incorrect. the mtn has sacred significance such that the local indian band consider it more than impolite to POINT AT the mountain, and they ask that NO CLIMBING take place on tatlow and its immediate neighbours. this policy was adopted by BC parks when this area became a provincial park; the parks management plan (for ts'ylos) expressly states no climbing on tatlow.


i had a long series on conversations over the winter with parks personnel, and with chief roger william, and (odd as it may seem to us) no one is being flexible.


fact is, there is no enforcement, and i know of recent ascents, but u want to consider the context before you set off. and you probably don't want to advertise your intentions...


apologies for for the initially misleading info.


it IS a beautiful peak...



cheers, don

and when you are driving up to Whitesaddle Air, it is considered very bad form to get out of your truck at the Tatlow viewpoint and point both middle fingers at the mountain and state "Take That Roger William!"
