Climbed this route after playing in the Columbia Ice fields on a climbing course run by Laurie Skreslet with Randy Knipping, Glen Wells, Dave Puglaise. We camped above the Glacier for practice. We had a good time as the weather cooperated. Very windy and stormy the next year. 1987
Climbed this route with the Spokane Mountaineers, general mountaineering class of 1996. Rope team of 2 instructors and 3 students, of which 2 students did not make it (intestinal distress and hypothermia). I was the lone student that made it on my team. Had a terrible first part of the climb - slow and cold - owing to the 30 other people on the climb. The headwall to A-A col and the col itself were MISERABLE - wind chills were -30C at least, 30-50 kph winds, ugly. But then it calmed down and the sun came out and a perfect summit day followed! See the photos. It was about 13-14 hours from tent to tent. A Japanese tourist did take a picture of me... weird.
