      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!

Lillooet 1/1-1/2; advice/roomshare

Recommended Posts

Partner and I are planning to hit Lillooet this weekend despite >0 temp and possible rain.


1 Advice for places that are less likely to be melted out/affected by warming Ts?


2 We'll probably stay at Mile-0 (or some other local hotel)- is anyone else going up that wants to pack 4 into a room to save some money?


3 Also willing to carpool (we have vehicle) if you are have similar objectives and travel plans (leave Fri afternoon/early evening, return late-ish sunday night).


PM responses to 2+3

Often Marble Canyon stays a bit colder than Lillooet. Check out Oregon Jack, tends to be colder in there. Haven't been following temp trends, but if it has been cold enough that a lot of the Duffey is well in, the higher climbs should hold out for a bit in warmer weather.

as Matt says, most of the climbs are 400m or more higher than Lillooet, so shld be 2C to 5C colder. forecast is 4C-5C, so i'd expect the Duffey and Bridge River canyon to be right around freezing - shld be OK. but bring every pair of gloves you own...


Marble Canyon is always colder, both becuz of altitude and becuz it's out of the coastal influnece that creeps up the Fraser Canyon to Lillooet. the Clinton forecast gives a better idea of what to expect:



another excellent source of temp info is drivebc:


navigate to either the south coast or south interior region maps, then click a triangle to get current weather - also highway cams... there is info at cayoosh summit (duffey lk road) and carpenter lake (bridge), etc.


as for which routes are in, etc, just follow:



maybe see you there.

Last weekend it was arctic at Rambles and up on the Duffy, so while the forecast even for town might be warmer, the conditions up on the Duffy and at Marble will be just fine.
