      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Split Peak Beta

Recommended Posts

Is anyone here familiar with Split Peak; east and a bit north of Kootenay Crossing? I'm looking for beta of any kind...approach, route, best nearby burger joints.

if the falafel place is open in radium we liked that but they may be summer only. def make a play to soak in the hot springs there--any hotel worth it's salt in radium will give 1 free pass with room..a nice place to cap off any outdoor ventures. good bakery in windmere but a bit off the path.

 

explored that vicinity for first time this summer with wife backpacking rockwall trail and backway (beymag mine) way into assiniboine. does the kootenay river freeze over just fine? no winter experience there myself, i'm guessing it probably does..

My fingers freeze off at 65 degrees so I stick to the summer routes - not sure about the river freezing :)

Not much help but try this or better yet just call John. Although the burger place isn't likely an option. But who knows ;)
