Is it worth a whole day just to ride this ridgeline?

So a 3hr drive from Van to get there, a 2hr? pedal to the top or a part way shuttle and then a 30-60min? retrieval at the end. Full day just to do that one ride plus a crazy descent at the end of the ridge.

Worth it?

Boston Bar area. 

There's some popular hiking/climbing routes in the area too. I've looked at it for a few years now, and it would be an epic ride. There's a spot out in Chilliwack that would be good too, but I like this one as the ridgeline views would better.

There's a FSR that get's you about 2/3 - 3/4 of the way to the top. I've haven't been out there myself, but on GE it looks like a great place to explore.

Yes recall you talking about the one near the border. Looks interesting... The BB one left to right I assume, or do I have it wrong?

Yeah, there's a few options. I initially looked at something like this, white up, yellow down, hence the need for a retrieval.

Your option would be shorter and no need for a retrieval. But the thought of pushing up through that valley into the alpine and then having that huge descent would be amazing. Views would be killer all around.

It would be a killer bike pack route too.

Looks great. Be nice to know what the ridge is like, if it's actually rideable.

Based on what I see on the maps I think it's doable, but you might need to ride off the ridge in a few spots. It's worth a recon mission...

Some good info here, although he goes in a different route to the right of our pics above. It gives a good idea of the terrain/scenery tho

I think you are right but add 4 hours for rests and possible re routes of sections.
