Starting at 9a.m. from North Vancouver the original plan for a sunny weekend was to have a group of friends gather in Tricouni Meadows, or Garibaldi. A democratic vote was taken and out of six people only two exorcised their right to vote (truly a Canadian vote). Garibaldi was the plan!
I had met Russell at the Red Heather Hut on New Years Eve 2000 and he had recently been in touch via e/m with an interest to summit a local mountain. He brought his brother Byron along to share the experience.
Pierrot was up from Seattle to visit Miriam a visiting Spanish Mountaineer that would set the standard for the climb. He was happy that she could come along so that he could be the only climber with a personal Sherpa. I have often said, "No man shall carry my pack". This woman could anytime I was truly taken back by her strength.
Perry was gearing up for next weeks attempt at Rainier, and was interested in kicking back with a bit of a challenge. It was evident right from the start that climbing is not a necessarily about bagging summits but rather just being out there sharing the experience.

Leaving the Jeeps at the gate a kilometer from the old Brohm ridge ski cabins we hit snow and started up Brohm ridge. While finding the snowmobiles exhausts a little irritating I kept in mind that everyone needs there place to enjoy the outdoors. The views of Atwell and across to the Table (Could be the 8th wonder of the world) were incredible, and if you just want to snowshoe in for a lunch one day I recommend it.
We had left at 1 p.m. and arrived at 6500ft well above tree line. By 4:30 p.m. we set up camp and enjoyed the clear skies. A view into the Tantalus range and lake Lovelywater...
