Parkhurst - North Face
Located in Garibaldi Provincial Park, south of Wedgemount Lake and on the west side of the Wedgemount Glacier. Access is via the Wedgemount Lake hut. From the hut, head east along the north shore of Wedgemount Lake to the Wedgemount Glacier. Curl clockwise along the glacier to reach the Wedge-Parkhurst col. Ascend the east south slope. The glacier on its southwest aspect is prone to full depth releases when the snowpack reaches isothermal tendencies in the spring.

1. Parkhurst - South Slopes NTD. The North and East sides of Parkhurst Mountain are quite intimidating. Steep faces with cliffbands, and judging from the amount of rockfall, dangerously loose. Crossing the Wedgemount Glacier to the south side of the mountain reveals a much gentler aspect. From the Wedge - Parkhurst Col it is an easy walk or ski up over rubbly slopes to the summit.
