Marriott- East Side
A dry, blocky and impressive looking summit at the head of the North Branch of Cayoosh Creek. These days, the peak is most commonly approached from the Duffey Lake Road, following a good trail into Marriott Basin (Grid 375860 on 92 J/8). Marriott Basin provides open and pleasant rambling in summer and in recent years, has been the site of two BCMC Christmas sled camps. The lakes are swimmable in August and early September. An ideal weekend objective. Marriott is the highest peak in the Western Cayoosh.

Name Notes: Named to remember RCAF Flying Officer Terrence James Marriott, J8641, enlisted at Vancouver; serving with 511 Squadron when he was killed in action 23 March 1943 (circumstances not cited). With no known grave, F/O Marriott's name is inscribed on the Runnymede Memorial, Surrey, UK, panel 174.

1. SE Ridge Class 3. Can be approached from the Upper Cayoosh Valley (i.e. Duffey Lake area) through the Marriott Basin. The ridge includes gendarmes and much scrambling. Equipment: Sturdy scrambling gear.
2. North Ridge Depends on routefinding ability. Could be up to 5th class. From the road up the east side of Eight Mile Creek, swing into next valley east and hike up until under the summit. Swinging S of the final peak makes it possible to avoid the Class 5 gap in the N Ridge. Equipment: Scrambling gear
