Mount Sproatt (from Callaghan Valley Road)
May 16, 2009
"We were lucky in many ways of how our hike turned out. We headed first to Whistler Olympic Park. I was surprised by how little snow existed there at altitude 850m. The forest looked too thick to be bushwacked and the snow conditions looked bleak. We headed then to an abandoned gold mine which I thought it would be better approach as it was located at 1000m and it was on a more direct route. We parked at about 960m where the snow line started. We were then pleasantly surprised to find a road that took us all the way up to the ridge (it is possible that this can be drivable to about altitude 1250m in Summer. I also think that this road is used by snow mobiles in Winter). Soft and slushy snow on the ridge took a big toll of energy from us. It was not sunny but it was definitely a hot day. We got to 1Km away from the peak at altitude 1720m but we then decided that it was not really worth it to complete the hike. Instead we headed to a false summit at 1750m and we called it a day. I am very sure that we could have made it."
