BMC 2016, The Melville Range – Selkirk Mtns – British Columbia
I am pleased to announce the location of the fifth annual Boutique Mountaineering Camp! Please join us in the remote Moby Dick area of the Selkirk Mountains, allowing access to some high-quality rock, amazing traverses in a spectacular yet comfortable setting.
We’ll have a spectacular campsite situated right beside the beautiful Houston Lake. Moby Dick, Fafnir, Claggart, Billy Budd, Pequod, Excalade, Forecastle, Proteus, Benito Cereno, White Jacket and Ulysses are all climbing objectives located within close proximity to our base camp site.
Over 2 summers I spent 10 weeks at this location and really enjoyed the good quality rock and the variety of amazing traverses available. The Redburn-White Jacket-Proteus traverse is one of my all-time favorite climbing routes. Visit the Moby Dick Route Synopsis for detailed route information. You can also check out routes in the guidebook Selkirks South, authored by David Jones.
