Darren9North Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2015


Sierra Mountaineering Club ascended the North Face route in a team of three. We found good snow and ice conditions and a few fixed pins on the route. The ice shield was about 50 degrees, upper rocks were a challenge but OK in mixed condition. Great climb!

Date Climbed: May 3, 2015


A quick run up to the summit then we descended the ramp in style! The Silverhorn was looking very unappealing so we took the more mellow route, and were rewarded with white rooms and face shots.

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.

Great day out. More of an ice climb on the Silverhorn. Ascended the Silverhorn, descended the north glacier (normal route).

Old School WB

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.

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2011


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!

Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2010


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!
