Nesakwatch Enchainment

July 20th 2019


Description:

Trip Plan:

Sat: meet at 9:00 am (location and time to tbd later).
Drive to Chilliwack and hike to the high boulder field and a large flat boulder with a good bivy site (with good views of Slesse).
Likely snow patches and water still present at the bivy site.

Sunday: Alpine start and hike/climb Nesakwatch North (PD+), South Nesakwatch (exposed and few moves of 5.7) and Rexford (few pitches in the 5.5-57 range).

For details read pg. 279 of Alpine Selected SW BC.

Descent via the standard route route of Rexford.
Hike back to the bivy site and the car. Return to Vancouver late evening

Sunday is expected to be a long day >12 h

Ideally, you have done 3 other similar climbs in the 5.7-5.8 range in the alpine and you have a background in begging peaks.
You also must know how to repell, belay in an alpine setting, short roping, lead climb on the 5.7-5.8 range. Do your own reading on the climb and judge for your self.

Expect some exposure and long sections of short roping with minimal gear.

If this trip is right for you sign up! It is probably one of top 5 alpine climbs in SW BC with some of the best rock in area, a easy approach and excellent views all around.

If weather conditions are not good, the trip will be postponed to the week after Jul 27-28
