No warm up on this scramble its straight up.This route must be coming very popular as there are lots of different paths. When in doubt keep right.

If you end up at the foot of this you went to far to the left

To get up to the Door Jam look for a path far right and you will go around  the big slabs.

To access Jura Creek scramble down to the Col. Look for a bit of a cairn on your far left to get down it is not that easy. There is no well defined trail down the water course gully so good luck it is steep with loose rocks .We got lucky as there was some snow that helped our footing. When you reach Jura Creek you are just above the narrow canyon where the bath tub holes are.

Time to Door Jam 2 hrs   Time to Loder another 20 mins      Time down the Gully to Jura 1.5 hrs

Distance 11.3 km      Elevation gain 967 m   High Point 2095 m   Time 5.45 hrs
