Stave Peak & Misty Peak from the SE
Stave Peak is the highpoint on an east-west divide between the Misty Icefield to the north and the Stave Glacier to the south. Access to this remote area involves an elaborate multiday expedition, either from logging road that run up Corbold Creek on the Pitt River drainage, or from logging road that run up the west side of the Lillooet River, between Tuwasus and Snowcap creeks. From the Misty Icefield, the summit is an easy ascent via its glaciated northeast slope.

Name Notes: This peak is unnamed on 92G/15. A "Stave" is a wooden post, buried in the ground, usually part of a building. Early wooden churches were constructed in this way. Staves are the vertical, load-bearing timbers in the building. The frame of a stave church wall consists of a sill, staves and a top sill, and these have grooves that receive the wall planks. 28 Stave churches have been preserved in Norway.
