SpudRoute Climbed: Silverhorn Date Climbed: June 24, 1994  Sucess!


Two attempts it took, but on June 24, 1994 I finally summited this baby. This was my first real Alpine mountain and was a helluva challenge, but a great reward. in retrospect I would have made sure to start the climb earlier in the morning as the snow became very unstable throughout the hot and sunny day.

The summit gave great views of the Parkway, the Continental divide and both Athabasca & the Saskatchewan Glacier

William Marler

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

climbitRoute Climbed: A-A Col Date Climbed: 5/23/96  Sucess!


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.
