Description

The Sutton Range is the most interesting group of high mountains for alpine climbing outside of Provincial Parks on Vancouver Island and includes Victoria Peak, Vancouver Island's third highest summit. The rock throughout the range is the typical Karmutzen basalt which is solid and makes for superb climbing.

There are a variety of climbing routes from standard mountaineering routes to long 10+ pitch technical routes. Because these mountains are outside of parks and are on public Crown Land, (with much of the surrounding forest heavily logged), they are good candidates for more intensive climbing development, including the installation of fixed bolted protection - although to date no such development has been necessary.

Getting There

Access into the Sutton range is from gravel logging roads. From the east follow the White or Adam River roads from Sayward, and from the west use East and West Main or Nimpkish Road that connects the communities of Gold River and Woss.
