CARIBOO, SLATE, GOAT, TWIN PEAKS & BALDUR MTS

CARIBOO MOUNTAIN   2270m  7448′
Cariboo Mountain is located west-southwest of Mount Odin, in Monashee Provincial Park.
Map 82L/9 Gates Creek.

Both Cariboo and Slate Mountains were climbed by members of the 1994 KMC hiking camps, and the routes are not clear.
Approach from either Peters Lake or the Valley of the Moon. Steep, grassy southeast slopes lead up to Cariboo. The summit is a wooded, rocky ridge (2014). FA unknown.
To climb the Cariboo-Slate gully, start low, the sides are steep. However, there is a passage above, on the east side, shown by deer that used it.  One can gain the top of Cariboo Mountain by the Cariboo-Slate col. 

SLATE MOUNTAIN   2500m   8202′
Slate Mountain is just west of Cariboo Mtn. Both Cariboo and Slate Mountains are north of Peters Lake and north of Mount Fosthall. 
Map 82L/9 Gates Creek.
An ascent route is left (west) of the Cariboo-Slate gully. Ascend through forest to meadows on the south side of Slate Mountain, and then steep, grassy slopes, going around cliff bands. Some scree and boulder slopes go to the summit, more attractive than Cariboo Mountain (2014).
FA unknown.
From the Valley of the Moon, traverse past Fawn Lake and then above Mike’s Lake to reach a ridge where a long slope or ramp leads down to a creek crossing. (The creek flows to Peters Lake.) From the crossing, there is a short, easy exit through forest, and then the steep, grassy slopes to Cariboo Mountain. (Map 82L/9 Gates Creek, south border) (PC: Peter Tchir) To climb Slate Mountain, proceed to the west after the creek crossing.

GOAT MOUNTAIN   2430m   7972′
Located southwest of Mount Fosthall, and southwest of Bill Fraser Creek. A double summit.

Map 82L/8 Mount Fosthall.

MOUNT BALDUR   2370m   7776′
East of Unnamed (Twin Peaks). Has been climbed and is easy by the northwest ridge.

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.
