Mamquam Massif - West Side
The highpoint of the sprawling Mamquam Icefield massif in southern Garibaldi Provincial Park. The approach is fairly long and is often done on skis via Skookum Creek or Elfin Lakes. The standard summit route is along the easy northwest ridge. "Many parties routinely fail to climb this summit" according to Anders Ourom in the Fairley guide.

1. Access via Skookum Dam Road (2018) Some route finding, stream crossing. From Squamish, drive up Mamquam Main to Skookum Dam road then hike trail network to Darling Lake. From Darling lake there are two possible routes: North Face and Southeast Face.
2. Mamquam - North Face (standard route) easy scramble. From the Mamquam Icefield ascend north slope to small plateau just west of the main summit (40-degree snow in winter). Follow the short summit ridge to high point as snow permits. Reported as an easy scramble in summer conditions.
3. Southwest Glacier Head eastward from Darling Lake to the south ridge of Delusion SW1. Crossover onto the southwest glacier and follow to the south side of Mamquam. Scramble the southeast face/ridge (loose at times) to the summit.
