About Rambler Peak:

Rambler Peak 2105m. Approach: On the Elk River trail from Highway 28. Follow the ERT to the bridge over Landslide Creek. Hike 200m up the open rock slab and leave the ERT on a flagged route up the Upper Elk Valley. This trail crosses the Elk River to the east bank and then continues underneath the huge walls of Rambler to Elk Pass. The North Col can be seen along this route and is the start of the North Buttress. For the West Buttress, continue hiking in to the basin below the west face where the toe of the buttress is readily identified. Rambler is also on the popular traverse route from Westmin through to the Elk River and can be reached this way as well. CARE! There can be an extreme hazard from avalanches pouring off the cliffs on Rambler, on to the upper Elk River Trail, with any amount of snow cover. The crossing on the Elk River can be difficult in high water. First Ascent: R. Facer, B. McDowell 1964 North Buttress: Mike Walsh, 1975 West Buttress: Chris Barner, Paul Rydeen, 26 Jul. 1990
