Mount Elsay in winter
A rocky summit north of Mt. Seymour on the Indian Arm-Seymour River divide. Some short, highly obscure 4th-5th class rock routes have been done on the summit crags of Elsay and on the slab on its East ridge. Definitely no crowds. Finding the routes will be the most challenging part of a repeat ascent.

Name Notes: Elsay is an old (pre-1914) name, probably named after a place of the same name in Scotland. Contrary to the BC Geographica Names website, the name "Jarrett" was never applied to this summit.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
