These photos showcase a spectacular climb of Mamquam Mountain. The Darling Lake Trail provides oustanding access to this magnificent area.
Mamquam Mountain (2588 meters/8491 feet) 49.77528, -122.85083 is the highpoint of the sprawling Mamquam Icefield massif in southern Garibaldi Provincial Park. The approach is fairly long and is often done on skis via Skookum Creek or Elfin Lakes. The standard summit route is along the easy northwest ridge. "Many parties routinely fail to climb this summit" according to Anders Ourom in the Fairley guide.
