The logging road system around Mt. Slesse

When figuring out the logistics of the car plant and access trails for climbing the NE Buttress of Slesse, I discovered a lot of ambiguities and confusion. Even though we prepared well, Clint and I still got lost up some logging road spur while trying to follow an outdated description of the trailhead for the Slesse Mountain trail. So, I drew up the above illustration, in hopes that it could clear up a lot of ambiguities. Click on the above illustration to enlarge. The route is highlighted in yellow. Hope it’s helpful. Oh, and the distances are in kilometers, in case you are wondering. It took 15 minutes to drive the 7.9km on the Slesse Creek Road, 9 minutes to drive the 8.9km on the Chilliwack Lake Road, and 14 minutes to drive the 6.4km on the Nesakwatch Creek Road

Holy Crap!

Where was this map when I climbed that thing. I sure could have used it - we only had Fred Becky's vague discription. I still consider it a minor miracle we climbed the thing and managed to find our vehicle again. Cheers!
