A route description in reverse order of our walk out from a fly-in camp
The easiest route on Mount Odin is the E. ridge:

From the lowest saddle bypass the first rock steps on the fairly crevasse free upper reaches of the Frigg Gl. The narrower upper ridge is a slightly exposed scramble on rock or snow. We reached the above mentioned saddle from our camp at the small unnamed lake west of Bearpaw Lk and south of Saturday Pk. (*Grizzly Lake). This made for an easy day's objective and allowed us to climb the 9100' peak at the east end of the ridge before returning to camp.

We reached the above mentioned saddle from our camp at the small unnamed lake "Silvertip Lake" west of Bearpaw Lk and south of Saturday Pk via the easy southsolpes of Mt Odin. this made for an easy days objective and allowed us to climb the 9100' peak at the eastend of the ridge, Odin E2 before returning to camp.

In 2002 the Alpine Club of Canada had a fly in - hike out camp at Silvertip Lake. We reached our camp at the small lake by helicopter from the end of the Fosthall Cr. Logging road. [photo]img956.jpg[caption]Silvertip Lake near camp[/photo]

After climbing Mt Odin we made a rest day by climbing Monday Peak on a more ambitious route than the direct ridge to the SE before beginning the trek out on the 4th day. [photo]img976.jpg[caption]Beginning the steep descent from Silvertip Lake[/photo]

Getting there on foot from the easy park trails in nearby Monashee Provincial Park is a difficult and complex route because of the long cliffband off Gates Ledge and the steep, deep valley of Ledge Cr.

If you want to retrace our trek back to the cars go from Peters Lk camp to Fawn Lk at the northern park...
