Mount Whimper

View Larger Map

This Saturday I went to hiking trip to Mount Whimper - highest Canadian mountain south of 49th parallel - with Alpine Club of Canada (Vancouver Island section). Sandy Briggs was the trip leader. I attached route recorded with my GPS (blue section is the hiking route, and magenta is logging road leading to the trailhead - 4WD with high clearance is a must have for logging road). 
It was light rain, however we completed round trip (~9 km) in 4 hours. Elevation gain was ~850 m to the summit (1541 m).
I posted this route in Google Maps (My Maps section)
Let me know, if you need track logs for this trip.
