Jimmy Jimmy is a glaciated summit between Clowhom River and Ashlu Creek. Head of Clowhom River, W of N end Tantalus Provincial Park, NW of Squamish, Most approaches use either Pokosha or Marten Creeks off Ashlu Creek. The glacier down Marten Creek on the north side of the mountain is used for summer flightseeing and landing because of its long, flat neve.

The summit has 3 distict towers aligned N-S. The center one is the highest. The final summit pinnacle is easily climbed from the SE.

Name Notes: Adopted in 1957. Chief Jimmy Jim, whom the mountain's name commemorates, was a well-known chief of the Squamish Nation in the 1930s and 1940s. He was the sole survivor of a Chilcotin Indian raid on the Elaho fish camp. He was eight years old and hiked down from the Elaho in snow. He later became chief.


1. From Pokosha Spur and Coin Pass Mount Jimmy Jimmy can also be reached by ascending the forest that brackets the west side of the intimidating avalanche path of Coin Peak to the north (sometimes called "Pokosha Mountain"). After reaching subalpine near 4000ft, traverse west to the circular lake. Cross a pass to Coin Creek. [Coin Peak can be climbed from the pass.] Descend into Coin Creek and climb out of the toilet bowl on the opposite side to gain the Jimmy Jimmy Glacier. There are several indistinct peaks - make sure to pick the right one. Mount Jimmy Jimmy is the furthest away. The last 10 metres is a short scramble from the east.
