Caption: The disused approach to Little Diamond Head from Alice Ridge

PhotoDescr: We took a day trip up Alice Ridge towards Little Diamond Head. From our neve traverse and Garibaldi summit climb the previous weekend I had noticed the Ring Creek North FSR had industrial activity. When our friends Josef and Eva said they were going to check out Alice Ridge the next weekend, Karin and I thought it would be fun to go with them. It turned out the hunch about the road was right. We drove to 650 metres on Alice Ridge and put on the skis ten minutes higher. I enjoyed the trip so much I went back again on the following Monday.

It toom me three hours to reach the point where I took the picture and it's another 30 minutes from there to the summit of Little Diamond Head.

The Ring Creek North FSR connects with Alice Ridge Road near the powerlines across Cheekye River. There is a critical gate on the Ring FSR across Mashiter Creek at Km 5. The gate was open all Easter long weekend. Ryan Allderman was up the following weekend and got locked in. See his road bulletin.
