Ascent Trip Report

1h30 round trip from locked gate (N49.11583° W122.14640°) just beyond Sumas Mountain parking lot, accessed via roughish dirt Sumas Mountain Road, probably OK in 2wd with care. Hiked road until just before comms towers, where orange flagged trail leads to east lookout, rock outcrop (GPS N49.12056° W122.12748°, 901m), mapped spot height. GPS indicated this point is c7m higher than mast compound corner (GPS N49.11969° W122.13124°, 894m), with hillock further SW in forest (GPS N49.11913° W122.13270°, 891m) lower still, but poor GPS accuracy. Altimeter should give better indication of which point is higher.

Drizzly end to 4 week BC trip, 8 new ultras, 2 repeats, 8 P1000m, 8 P600s and a few lesser summits. We fly home this eve from YVR
