Lost Lake Shelter 26/02/11

Robert D. at the Lost Lake shelter:
“Originally planned as a 2-day, we decided to condense this trip into 1 day with an earlier start. Three of us assembled at 6 am and made our way to the handy parking lot just south of Porteau Cove, the access point for the northern end of the Howe Sound Crest Trail. The trail to Lost Lake shelter follows Kallahne Creek. The route on the ascent was very slow going due to trail breaking in heavy powder. The trail is not the easiest in any condition due to numerous awkward creeks crossing it. It took us 5.5 hours to reach the shelter which was a welcoming place to rest for a late lunch. The shelter itself, situated on the western edge of Lost Lake, is rustic but reasonably maintained and can hold about 6-8 people. The conditions and bad visibility negated any chance of continuing to Deeks Peak but an overnight trip to the bag the peak would be worthy of a future call out. The descent took just 2.5 hours.”
