Set in the dramatic wilderness of the upper Elk Valley, Rambler peak offers one of the finest moderate technical rock routes anywhere. The West Buttress offers 650 metres of clean basalt climbing directly to the summit. Awesome as it is, the difficulty rating never exceeds 5.6. After enjoying the breathtaking view from the top, you make a dramatic descent into the vast granite slabs of Elk pass. Alternatively, less experienced parties can choose to ascend the more straightforward Ramblers Route. Either way it is a strenuous 3- or 4-day trip requiring reasonable fitness.
Our Intro to Rock or equivalent and some scrambling experience are recommended for the West Buttress, whereas no experience is required for the Ramblers Route. Price listed is for a 3-day trip. Please contact us for the price of a 4-day trip.

Not included in the price:
Transportation, food and personal clothing and equipment. We offer catering on some of our trips for an extra $60/person/day. Please check with our office to see if your trip has this option.

The trip was great, felt really adventurous, exceeded my expectations with good company and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Christophe judged his pace well so I could keep up without difficulty and enjoy the experience. The camps were comfortable, Christophe's cuisine had a touch of French flair, the rock was dry & the friction good. The climbing was comfortably within my ability and the views spectacular. There was a real feeling of satisfaction on reaching the summit. An all-round excellent trip. Best regards & thanks again for a really memorable trip.Nigel Riley, Ambleside, England.
