Couldn't find the right gully at the top. Followed the south face route but crossed the face too low and then faced some hard climbing. Ended up 30m below the summit.Look up vancouver islander's post for the standard south face route http://www.summitpost.org/victoria-peak-south-face-standard-route/185919 for best route finding.
After a failed attempt far too early in the spring (too much snow on the roads), managed to climb Vic peak just as the weather started to change and the snow began. Climbed the standard south face route
From a camp at the top of the logging road and on my fourth try. Hot day that made for hazy views. Wasted nearly 2 hrs on the south face before we found a gully that would go. Nearly 14 hours car to car.
