Joffery Lakes are north of Whistler, in the heart of the southern coastal mountains. There lies the Duffy lake area and some of the finest mountaineering peaks in British Columbia.
We will spend three days climbing the majestic glaciated peaks of the Joffre Lakes Group: Mt Matier, Slaylock, Hartzel and Mt Joffre.
Camping will be at a high col on the Anniversary Glacier within striking distance of steep north faces, classic glacier ascents and rocky ridge climbs – all in a sensational setting!
The Joffre Lakes Group is one of the great mountaineering area in Canada on the coast range that is easily accessible from the highway. It is a bit of a hike but once in the area there are many great mountaineering adjectives to do.
I will take you to the best mountaineering the Joffre Group has to offer.
