This looks like Tsaydaychz, all right, your photo taken from roughly the east. Our 1978 route was either up the left skyline or, more likely, just in front. The peak has not had a 2nd ascent, afaik.

In the 1980s, Beckey went to do the into do the conspicuous snow/ice line on the NE face, but found it too avalanchy (or maybe there's an ice bulge near the top) and instad did something off to the right of the photo. The face looks good to me if conditions are good.

The NNW ridge (right skyline) also looks very attractive to me; the upper part (just a hint of sun on it in the photo is a steepish, exposed snow ridge that reminds me of the N arete of Wedge in Garibaldi Park.

Access to this remote area north of Bella Coola is nasty, unless you fly in as we did in 1978 and as Fred did.

Here's a photo of Tsaydaychuz from the west, to complement Opo's from the east. For a peak that barely scrapes 9000 feet (2758 metres), this is a big mountain.

Good additions to a good thread.


For comic relief, here is one of 2 good-looking crags a 15 minute walk from a paved road.

I wonder if Oplopanax recognizes it.

That looks a lot like a crag near Hope.

FWIW, this is shaping up to be a big year in Coast Mts climbing too, with two new big wall routes in the Daniels River from the Powell River crew, the FA of the West Pillar of Monarch by Richardson and partner, and a bunch of stuff in the Klite/Headwall area done in July too. All of this despite Hwy 20 being closed for almost a month!

Chris Kalman and partners were in there for two or three weeks in July. Not sure yet what they climbed but he emailed me before for beta and afterwards to say they'd had a successful trip and climbed a bunch of stuff. I'm keen to find out details too!

What a range, eh? Never stepped foot in any of the environs but sure does look pretty from the air. Here's some more photos:

Of course, "the Klite/Headwall area" won't mean anything to 99.9% of supertopians, but, in case any of you were wondering, here's a google earth clue:

Some serious granite here.

Looking forward to hearing the stories.
