Getting down to A-A col in a mixture of snow and wet choss was an ordeal, and the pinnacles between the col and standard route were also a bit tricky. Tromping down the glacier afterwards was a relaxing pleasure. A beautiful, sunny day on the Icefield. Trip report.

Went up the AA col side but scrambled the chossy rock face on climber's right of the ice to Silverhorn then followed ridge to summit.

Summitted in a whiteout via The Ramp route. Sprinting underneath the serac was the crux of the whole thing.

First Canadian Rockies 11,000'er, did it as part of an ACC mountaineering course, ran by Yamnuska guides. Summited with Andy Meyers and a big group of other wankers.

Did Silverhorn route on July 26, 2003 in perfect conditions.

Left Canmore at 2 am, started climbing at 4:30 and watched the beautiful sunrise over the mountains. Easy climb technically, but fairly long. There was a lot of snow, unusual for this time of the year, which may have slowed things down a bit. Took us a little over 9 hours return trip, although we took our time. Had a gorgeous sunny day so there was no rush. The summit ridge is awesome!

Climbed with Yamnuska Mountain Adventures. First mountaineering trip. -5C in the night; 20C forecasted the next day. Day was so hot, we plunge-stepped on the descent in t-shirts. Lots of serac fall heard the night before, but not on Athabasca.

Had a great time with fellow participants, Jeff, Nadine, Jane and Duncan. Special thanks to Steve Blagborough and Jason Billing from Yamnuska for keeping us in one piece.

A fantastic route and perfect weather. No wind and great views of many distant summits. The rock step was as difficult as advertised. My first mixed pitch - what a great way to start!

Started out around 3:30am my friend who had never climbed before was having a tough time (fitness) he stayed with some other climbers at the base off to the right of the Silverhorn and we climbed up to the summit with clear views after snow earlier in the morning. Awesome trip!!! :)

Tom Marron and I climbed (and descended) Athabasca by the north glacier route on his arm sunny day. The ascent took 4 3/4 hours. It was warm, sunny, and still to stand comfortably on the summit in shirt sleeves. The descent, on surprisingly firm snow despite the warm weather, took 3 hours.
