Chilliwack / Cultus Lake Area, BC

“Windy Knob” is the unofficial name of a small forested bump on the northern end of “Liumchem Ridge”. It’s lower than any of the three other objectives, and also the least interesting in this group. Originally I wasn’t even going to claim this as a separate peak but searching around on the internet it seems like this name is fairly popularly used, so I’ll go with that. Vlad and I did it as the last objective after completing Liumchen, Church and “Old Baldy“. The approach and return is written in the trip reports of our primary objectives and here I only show the summit views.
