Climb Mt. Cory

Added by Matt Ford

  • Distance: 1,300 m (1 mile) roundtrip
  • Duration: 4 hours
  • Elevation gain: 500 m (1,640 ft) between approach and climb
  • Scenic, easy access climb with exceptional rock and exposure

Park at the viewpoint parking lot on the left side of the highway, approximately 2.8 km (1.7 mi) after turning off of the Trans Canada Highway. The trailhead is easily located on the north side of the highway.

The approach is short but steep and sustained. It starts as a trail and finishes as a scree and loose rock scramble, so careful route finding is essential. It should take around 40 minutes to get to the base of the climb. Because of the popularity of this route, it is recommended that you get an early start to avoid large clusters of climbers.

This climb is ideal for less experienced climbers as it is well bolted and the rock is exceptional for the area. "Banff Rock" by Chris Perry is one of the best books for all of the multi pitch climbs in the area. It has good quality colour photos, topos, history on the area and climbing, as well as up to date and accurate route descriptions.

The parking lot for the trail is just outside of Prince Rupert and right off of Highway 16W. This hike is an easy hike, with some hills, through a beautiful coastal rainforest.

Explore Bijoux Falls

Canada / Bijoux Falls

Bijoux Falls is a lovely tiered waterfall right along side highway 97N. It's a great place to stop and take a break to stretch the legs no matter which direction you are heading.
