October 22nd, Tuesday
Another sunny late October day. Set off from the parking for Mt Loder & Door Jam Peak, in the ditch on the north side just east of the Graymont Plant. The objective for the day Door Jam, Mt. Loder and back down the watershed to Jura Creek.
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.
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
