Meet at Whistler Marketplace parking lot in front of McDonalds at 10am. Final carpools can be organized from here. Only need 2wd cars to park just outside Birkenhead lake/bottom Felix creek FSR. OPTION to take a 4WD vehicle as far up the FSR as we can go. Hike from there into Brian Waddington hut.
Rough Intermarry:
Day 1: ~4-5hr leisurely hike to the hut.
Day 2: ~6-9hr grade 2-3 scramble and hike at a leisurely pace.
Day 3: ~3-4hr grade 2-3 scramble and hike, then 2-3hr hike out to vehicles.
Although there is a hut, it's strongly
encourage to bring shelters/tents, in case the hut is busy (which it can be). People can organize to buddy up if they want. Or carry it in themselves, from car to hut/basecamp it is only 6km I believe and approx. 500 m elevation gain.

Required Items to Bring:
-Hiking/scrambling gear
-camping gear [tent,sleeping bag, sleeping mat,
-stove, pot, etc.]
-ice axe & crampons (in the event we hit snow,
hiking/scrambling route is fairly low angle so it might not be needed) Chocolate for your trip leader!
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Positive attitude and a good sense of humor.
