Athelney Pass is a remote site E of the Lillooet Icefield, at the head of Salal Creek. On the E side of the Coast Range, it enjoys a dry climate. At 1,800m, it is surrounded on the N side by rolling glaciated peaks like Mt Ochre (2,500m) that are easy scrambling. On the S side of the valley, a line of peaks (Ethelweard (2,700m), Guthrum and Icemaker) are surrounded by crevassed glaciers that offer classic alpine snow approaches and long dry ridges on granite-like rock. The area has something for everyone.
