Good hike with great views of the cheam range. Some snow on the north side of the ridge, but easily doable in shoes/boots.

16.1 km, 5.5 hours up, 2.7 hours down. Parked at 780 m elevation. Recent washout makes further driving difficult unless very high clearance and aggressive off road driving. You need 4wd to get this high. Followed the ridge; which is safe from avalanches. Snow with tangled alders at 1320m. 2 to 4 inches of soft snow over hard base. Snowshoes are optional. Boots actually easier on the ridge. Some step Kicking and winding through trees on narrow ridge is slow going. Poles recommended above 1400m. Many false summits on the ridge.

April 24. Mellow, easy snowshoe plod with beautiful views of Cheam range. 4 hrs at relaxed pace to first peak. Parked shortly after turning onto Airplane Creek FSR. Plodded up remainder of FSR and strapped on shoes soon. Didn’t take the ridge route but the other one (“unnamed skitour” on Gaia). No real avi terrain - or avoidable - up to first (southeast summit). Bivouac says the northwest summit is the true one so we dropped off the first bump and went up 2nd. On way back, if you want to avoid all avi terrain, climb back up first peak and retrace steps. If you drop directly into valley, you’ll traverse at least 2 areas of concern if avi forecast questionable. @twooutofthree

First to Review

Laughington is great for short days, recently rare weather windows and some fun 4x4 FSR travel. Drove quiet far up the road... even through the Alder tunnels which tried very hard to rip the mirrors off my truck... see the Google Earth image I attached for a sense of where I parked (Blue track high clearance 4x4, yellow track is hike proper). Someone has kindly trimmed back what was a harsh gauntlet of Alders just a year ago... so this route is now about 200x more pleasant. Snowshoes went on within a few minutes of leaving the truck (~1300m elevation). Did my best to follow an old GPX track so I had a reasonably clean track I could share here. Some bushy sections as you try to stay on top of the ridge, hard crusty snow in the shadows and icy crust under the trees. Moving Time: 3hr 50min Elevation Gain: 850m Average Grade: 14% Enjoy the images, be safe and have fun out there. Regards, Rex
