While our normal Comox Glacier Hike takes the standard hiking route on which there is a little scrambling at most, this trip reaches the glacier from a secret valley in behind and then via a rarely climbed couloir! Hike the amazing and rarely-visited Kweishun Valley to spend your first night at Mirren Lake. Then climb the snow couloir to just beside the summit of the Glacier and follow the normal route back down via the frog pond. This three-day climb travels over two glaciers and covers some of the most impressive terrain in Strathcona Park.
