Payments are done online, the blue link on the left (Smart phones/i-phones don't have this app, so it must be done on PC/MAC) ****

We attempted Red Peak on October 26, 13, and ended up scrambling GR 210395. This time I'm committed to bag the true summit. The steep ascent is through North Buller Pass. Expect some snow. . 

If there's interest, I'll also stop by Canmore for a supper.

    Mission accomplished. Read Peak is officially bagged! We put a summit register as well :) Totally worth the effort. Thanks everyone!

    Another fun Ugur Special with a great group. Just enough snow to make an easy scramble more interesting, and we even had the mountain to ourselves. Doesn't get much better.

    Debie, Erica, and Susie. You need to make the membership or casual hiker's fee before midnight. Please refer to the description above. Otherwise I can't take you with me tomorrow. To avoid disappointment, please make your payments as soon as you can.

    We were at North Buller Pass this weekend and there was a huge cornice all the way from the pass up to the peak. totally socked in with about 4 feet of snow. The hike is a long one. 17 Km return if you do summit.

    Sorry, have Stage West tickets that night and will be unpopular if I am late.

    So sad I'll have to miss this one. Not Red peak was a lot of fun, actually summitting Red Peak would be epic.

      Not Red Peak is tentatively known as Mount Ugur :)
