“There are many approaches to climb Lugnaquilla. From the North East from Glenmalure via Carrawaystick Falls, via Baravore and then through Fraughan Glen or up the track from the north west which skirts Table Mountain and joins another access path from the west and then up to Camenabolgue and back to Lugnaquilla. From the southeast there are routes up from Drumgoff and Aughavanagh and from the south via Slieveman (Balllyneedin) or most commonly from Seskin via Camera Hill. The last is the most commonly used but caution it crosses an army firing range and you need to check when this is closed to hikers.”

“I climbed the peak on Tuesday, April 21,2015. My dog and I left the Snow Bowl parking lot at 7 am and arrived at the top by 10:20 am. We encountered snow and ice on the lower trail in the forest. More snow below the saddle, and mostly clear the rest of the climb. Visibility was fair at the top with haze and clouds obscuring the potential great views. Winds were light and temperature in the 30's. I used my worn Kahtoola's for traction on the snow and ice.”

“There are plenty of accommodation options throughout the Cowichan Valley and surrounding area, including B & B, hotels and camping. Mount Whymper (tallest peak on Vancouver Island, south of the 49th parallel) is located some 20 km up a private (gated) logging road in the Copper Canyon, through which runs the Chemainus River. The gate is open to the public on weekends from 8:00am to 6:00pm, except for fire season. There is no camping permitted inside the gated area, everyone going in in the morning means everyone out by evening. Logging has occurred almost to the tree-line of Whymper, just a generous band of timber remains. Consequently there is 4x4 access up most of this peak. The trail leaves the road at a well placed small rock cairn and vaguely threads its way through recent logging slash. Once into the timber the trail becomes fairly obvious. As you leave the timber onto bare rock there is some minor exposure as you scramble over small faces, but there is no technical climbing here. I would place the worst of it at a 5.0 with the majority being 4.6 - 4.8 (Yosemite scale). The actual climb involves an elevation gain of roughly 400m and the view is excellent; south gives you the Olympic Range of Washington State, west shows you the Pacific Ocean, north allows a view of Arrowsmith Mountain (iconic), while east lets you look right into downtown Nanaimo. A map of the road system would be necessary (South Island Back Roads, a map book), and some route finding skills would be an asset. This peak is usually covered in snow well into June with pockets persisting into July. There is NO cell-phone service here.”
