North Joffre Creek was previously best known for skiing and ice climbing but due to recent route development it is becoming known for some of the best alpine rock on the BC west coast.
North Joffre Creek is accessed from a forest road off Hwy 99 between Pemberton and Lillooet. Driving north from Squamish/Whistler, set odometer at the Hwy 99 traffic light for downtown Pemberton. At about 10.6 miles (17 km), the hwy leaves the valley and begins the steep climb up to the Duffey Lake area. At 16.2 miles (26 km) turn left onto a gravel road signed "West Joffre Mainline." This FSR is 1.8 miles (2.9 km) before (south/west of) the Joffre Lakes parking. Drive across a wooden bridge, pass a gravel pit on left, and take the right-most fork at 0.1 mile from Hwy 99. At 0.6 mile (1 km), pass a spur on right (don't take). At 2.0 miles (3.2 km), cross a creek (assume this would be raging in Spring and difficult passage without high clearance) and the road turns 4wd rough. At 2.2 miles (3.5 km) from Hwy 99, turn left onto overgrown spur road (main road switches up right) and park. Mouse’s Tooth (or probably the wall just to climber's left) is visible up the valley from this parking spot.
