Access Issue: Mt Arrowsmith is partly private property Details


The best and most easily accessed, and more importantly most consistently formed ice climb on Vancouver Island. Climbs a narrow, steep chimney. Trudge up Bruggers Gully to the base of the route, climb a 20m section of AI3 to find the obvious chimney entrance. 2 rope lengths gains easier ground, with 2-3 short but steep steps on the way.


Mt. Arrowsmith, Vancouver Island South.
