The Cariboo Mountains are the furthest north of the Columbia Mountains. They are west of the Jasper National Park sector of the Canadian Rockies. The plutons found in the Purcell, Selkirk, and Monashee ranges seem to be absent. It may be that all of the rocks exposed in the Cariboos are too rotten to form good faces for climbing.
The highest summit is Mount Sir Wilford Laurier (11,550ft), first climbed in 1924, and located in the Premier Range. Other 10,000 foot peaks can be found in the Premier Range (of the Cariboos, not northernmost Canadian Rockies). Otherwise, the average peak in the Cariboos is around 8,000 to 9,000 feet in elevation and nameless.
Bowron Lake Provincial Park is the most popular destination in the Cariboos. All the peaks near the park have been climbed but they are not difficult and of less interest to most readers of Mountain Project.
GUIDES AND BOOKS
William Lowell Putnam wrote the only book with climbing information for the Cariboo Mountains: A Climber's Guide to the Interior Ranges of British Columbia, American Alpine Club,1937,1947,1955,1963,1971. This book is now out of print.
Helicopter skiing is no longer new to the Cariboo Mountains. Mike Wiegele is one name that I've heard bantered about. There are some good mountain pictures at his website, but they are a mix of Monashee and Cariboo views.
Of course, Hans Gmoser's company, Canadian Mountain Holidays is also recommendable beyond any doubt. Gmoser and his guides made the first ski descent of Denali's Wickersham Wall. Also they completed the first ski traverse of the Canadian Rockies.
If any heli-guides or clients are reading here, then I have a request: Could you please post a some photos of any steep walls, sharp summits, or waterfall ice? Also, some pictures showing the best routes up the major peaks in the Premier Range, posted here, might be good for business.
