*****If you are new to CORA and never hiked with us before, please read the description carefully. We admit paid members only. And there are two options: Either purchasing annual membership ($20) which lasts until the next AGM, or casual hiker's fee ($5) that is valid for one outing. 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.
