Shulaps Peak from Peak 2794 above Jim Creek
Shulaps Peak is an impressive rock and snow peak with a small glacier on the north side. Access is via a camp in the meadows around the eastern branch of Jim Creek.

Name Notes: Shulaps is the Chilcotin word for the ram of the mountain sheep; the nearby Yalakom Range gets its name from the Chilcotin word for the ewe of the same animal.


1. Northwest Ridge Class 3. The Northwest Ridge (Class 3) of the true peak can be climbed by first gaining the ridge to the northwest, then climbing the final peak, going out onto the exposed snow at times, and depending on conditions, an ice-axe may be required. There is one moderately exposed move required just below the summit. In summer, when the snow is soft it can be done without an ice ax or rope.
2. Southwest Ridge Class 3. The southwest ridge (Class 3) appears to be most easily reached from a Jim Creek Camp by following Jim Creek right to its source, then climbing up towards the col between true Shulaps and Peak 8880 immediately to the south. Can be steep in places, and in winter, sufficient avalanche danger was encountered near summit to cause 1977 party to turn back just before peak.
3. East Ridge Class 2. The East Ridge (Class 2) can supposedly be reached via a good trail up the northwest side of Brett Creek, up to the very last meadow, then through a break in the headwall and then walking up the upper slopes to the final peak.
