Ascent Trip Report

Took a water taxi with 9 other BCMC members from Horseshoe Bay to the Bible Camp dock on Anvil Island. After handing over our waiver forms we were guided 200m to the trailhead by a Bible Camp worker & hiked the steep trail to the summit. Our boat had been late picking us up and our collection time was not flexible, so unfortunately 2 members of the group didn't have enough time to make the summit, making the decision to stop at the White Spot lookout, after about 1.8km and 400m elevation gain. The rest of us hiked on from White Spot at a fast pace & summited around 2.5hours after setting off from the dock. Our pickup time was 2pm, so we only got to spend 20minutes or so at the top taking in the awesome view of the Howe Sound, with Mount Garibaldi & Black Tusk visible in the distance.
