WARREN GROUP

The Warren Group is outlined by Vowell Creek on the west, Bobbie Burns Creek on the northeast, Bugaboo Creek on the southeast, and the creek just south of Rockypoint Creek on the south.
It is a large area which contains a number of summits over 2600 meters. Warren Creek, tributary to Bobbie Burns Creek, nearly bisects it. CMH uses the ridges for heli-hiking. The Kootenay Mountaineering Club held 3 weeks of hiking camps here in 2007 and climbed everything that could be ascended. They accessed the camp by helicopter.

Access. A road of unknown condition goes up Warren Creek. With much bushwhacking, the group could be reached by the roads on the creeks which surround it.

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.
