Woden is a lesser known peak in the valhallas, but like most peaks in the area, it deserves more attention. The peak towers over the Mckean lakes basin with over 700m of vertical relief. The rock is gniess, like most peaks in the valhallas. The rock quality on Woden is generally pretty good, not as solid as some peaks, but its better than most peaks in the canadian rockies.

Getting There 

Drive to Slocan and start up little slocan river FSR until you reach a turn off for koch creek FSR, look for the mining operation. Continue up koch creek road for roughly 30km and look for the mckean lakes trail sign on the right side. The drive up koch creek is best done in a vehicle with reasonably good ground clearance. After the drive hike up the good clear 2.5 km trail to the mckean lakes basin. Once at the upper lakes there is lots of good spots to camp if you want to. On a side note, there are some buildings for a ski operation in the basin, please be respectful to the owners and don't mess with there stuff.

Start from the south side of McKean lake and start heading east, contouring around the lake aiming for the base of the south ridge. Once at the base scramble up the ridge, there is a faint trail that follows the path of least resistance. The route will become steeper and steeper before reaching a short 3rd class section, after which the angle eases for the last stretch to the summit. Descend the same way....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
