||Mt. Drabble, Strathcona Park
|10 Aug, Friday Wednesday
||firstname.lastname@example.org; 250-285-3710. Please contact the coordinator by Monday evening.
||The approach to Mt. Drabble will be from a logging road off of Strathcona Parkway on the way to Mt. Washington. The logging road drive is fairly long and slightly deteriorated since the Club last drove it, but still possible without 4×4. We will walk the last steep part of the logging road and follow a cairned route up the mostly sub-alpine ridge to Mt. Drabble. There is one major dip in the ridge before the summit, which offers great views of the Forbidden Plateau in good weather. 12.5 km; 6+ hours; 650m elevation gain.
||QCove ferry terminal
|8:00 am ferry; drivers need to be early to ensure loading.
|Challenging for the length of the day, elevation and altitude gain.
||Ferry, shared fuel costs.
||We will not do this trip in poor weather. This is a long day. Come prepared for mountain conditions.
