Crest Mountain Climbing Notes
Gerald Roberts from CANADA writes:
Camping is only permitted 1 kilometre from the highway. The Creek crossing [log with handrail] fits this requirement and is the last place for water until the snow melt lake 5 kilometres and 1,250 metre gain from the parking at highway 28.
<br/>It is an interesting walk along the plateau ridge from the lake to the summit a 160 metre gain over 1.25km.
<br/>Camping at the lake is usual but as a wilderness area 'scat holes' must be dug well away from the only available water supply.
<br/>The sunset and sunrise can be well worth seeing but pack as light as possible for an overnight stay a the steep descent is hard on knees and legs.
<br/>Gold River 16 kilometres west is the nearest place for help [RCMP, Clinic, telephone (no cell coverage I area),tow truck and gasoline plus groceries and restaurants].
