West Ridge of Flora Peak
Flora Peak is the highest point of a pleasant, alpine ridge 2km N of Chilliwack Lake. The Flora Pass Trail leads to Flora pass 500m SE of the peak before dropping to Flora Lake, 1km E of the peak and 730m lower. Flora Peak is easily ascended via its SE slopes from the pass. In winter, there is a good ski descent from the open ridgecrest W of Flora Peak. The slopes further E and immediately S of the peak are steep and largely treeless and bare rock, sliding readily and funneling into a narrow canyon- a hazardous area receiving full S exposure and heating from mid-winter sun.

There are gargoyle features NW of the peak. If Flora Peak were steeper, there would be good climbing on it. Near its summit, the rock is blocky, well jointed and clean.
