Yak Peak from the highway in late spring condition...
A large slabby granite dome located immediately northwest of Coquihalla Pass and easily accessed from Highway 5. Rock quality is variable but generally good. The ease of access, visibility and short approach have led to many climbs being established.
From Highway 5, park at Zopkios Rest Area and walk east along the highway about 1km. A cairned trail leads upwards to the base in about 30 minutes/300m elevation gain.
Weather station 24.5 miles from here

The bolts are significantly closer together on this one than on Reality Check....[more] Browse More Classics in International
