Mountaineering in the Tantalus Range

There is a wide variety of climbing opportunities of various grades. Classic alpine routes abound on such peaks as: Tantalus 2603m (8540′); Dione 2590m (8500′); Alpha 2305m (7562′); Serratus 2326m (7632′) and many others. Climbing in the area is covered in Climbing and Hiking in Southwestern B.C. by Bruce Fairley, and in Alpine Select by Kevin McLane. This is not a party destination and Mountain Culture is expected with respect for the environment and for fellow Hut users and campers in the area.
