First Ascent Info:
  1993 CAJ, page 68 by John Clarke
 After convalescing in Smithers for a week Steve and I teamed up with Doug Herchmer for a trip to Mount Valpy which wed been admiring from the Exstew for weeks. We climbed out of the Gitnadoix Valley up the ridge south of Clay Creek and put our high camp on the ridge 3 km west of Mount Valpy. The peak is a big pyramid with the most unbelievably loose rock and our climb went up a dead straight gully on the west face.
