      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!

Trip: "Inkawthia" Peak - Poss 2nd Ascent? - via Charles Creek


Date: 10/27/2007


Trip Report:

Jmace, jordop and I climbed this c. 1897m peak NE of the Old Settler on Saturday. weather was overcast but did not rain, bits of blue sky later in the day.


A guy at Lakeside had told me the road was reopened in September and it turned out to be true - washouts regraded and downed trees cut throgh - also, all the gates were open and unlocked. 4wd-hc got us to the last clearcut at 1050m. We followed the fall line up to the ridge crest and thence along ridges to the summit. The peak is composed of very nice granite, although the S and East sides are reasonably steep they are also broken and heathery and maybe not all that impressive for technical climbing (but i'm sure you could eke out a couple of 4-pitch Class 4 lines on a summer afternoon if you felt like it)


We found a survey marker on top and some scattered rocks that may have once been a cairn, say 30 years ago or so.


The views are pretty good, especially across to the Anderson River Peaks and SW to Old Settler and Medissa.
















Gear Notes:

Ice axe or ski poles.


Approach Notes:

East Harrison road to Cogburn Creek

Cogburn Creek to Charles Creek

Charles creek to end 4wd-hc

Bushwack to ridgeline.

Good beer choice. Sounds like a great day out.


After reading the CT version of the TR I did a quick search on Urquhart to see if there were any nice routes up that face. Found your old TR. Yikes!
