BALFOUR KNOB

Minor peak above Balfour. Access poor and rarely climbed. 2261m (7417′)

Time: 7.5 hours
Map: 82F/10 Crawford Bay and 82F/11 Kokanee Creek

Drive: Via cutlblocks up Leake Creek on the south side of Coffee Creek.
When the map is examined, it would appear that a logging road accessed from the north end of upper Balfour would give the best access.

Route: ascend through timber, past a higher block where the road was snowed in, and continue through timber and up a ridge to reach a bump at 013-031. Then walk SW on snow over various lumps along a ridge system leading to the base of the objective’s north ridge that is easy to surmount. Green communication cone. Kootenay Lake and ferries below.

 

About admin

I would like to think of myself as a full time traveler. I have been retired since 2006 and in that time have traveled every winter for four to seven months. The months that I am “home”, are often also spent on the road, hiking or kayaking.
I hope to present a website that describes my travel along with my hiking and sea kayaking experiences.
