The Chilliwacks Peaks


Intermediate Alpine Climb - The Chilliwacks Peaks

Long weekend trip back to the Chillis. Aiming for Redoubt and the Mox spires.

  • Thu, May 23, 2024 — Mon, May 27, 2024
  • Seattle Climbing
  • Climbing
  • Intermediate Alpine
  • Adults
  • Basic Alpine Climb, Intermediate Mountaineering Climb, Intermediate Rock Climb
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 15.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 7,500 ft

We'll meet in the Seattle area early on day 1 to get the drive into BC out of the way early and leave plenty of time to navigate the logging roads into NCNP from the north before starting the approach.

Back up dates if the weather does not cooperate will be the following first weekend in June leaving Seattle on Thursday the 30th.

This itinerary is subject to change but here is my current thinking on the itinerary:

Day 1 - approach + camp at Lake Ouzel

Day 2 - move camp up to Redoubt Glacier + climb Mt Redoubt

Day 3 - Hard Mox

Day 4 - Easy Mox  + move camp down to Lake Ouzel

Day 5 - hike out + head to Chipotle

My first trip to the Chillis was a bruiser so excellent fitness is required for these challenging objectives.  I would like to be the least fit person on the roster.  Please note that I will likely not respond to requests until the registration date unless we have successfully climbed together previously.
