Storm city  Sucess!

Tried a full on winter ascent....we got crushed.

Went back, intent to bag a few peaks in the area. Got hit by what are still possibly the strongest winds i've encountered. went for direct route, white out forced us to make the safe open route.

At the top we barely broke out of the white out, I still have the summit photos on my wall. Would have been a great view I'm sure.

north face ski  Sucess!

It's kind of absurd to ski Joffre this time of year, but it is a mountain that should be skied. A bit over 11 hours car-to-car. Trip report.

North Face  Sucess!

Almost perfect conditions. Bivi at moraine camp, glacier all free of crevases and the face was perfect for ascent with hard snow. Summit was vindy and cloudy.

Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: August 21, 2005  Sucess!

Gorgeous day and perfect snow conditions - we just walked up the face with no difficulty and did not feel the need for protection. This season has been unusual, in previous years the face has been bare ice this late in the season. Some small slides were seen the day before on the face from the fresh snow but not in our line of ascent. Blue skies and views as far as you could see! Went with Nayden, Chester, Marta and Enrique.

Great Mountain to do solo I found. I posted a trip report. Joffre, Sir Douglas and Assiniboine are must bags in the Kananaskis region of the Canadian Rockies. These are the three summits you will get the best view of as you peak bag in the area.

Route Climbed: northeast ridge Date Climbed: 19 August 1995  Sucess!

Laurie Skreslet and I climbed this peak in poor weather. We were in the clouds all the way up and had zero view from the summit.

Route Climbed: NE Ridge Date Climbed: June 29 2003  Sucess!

Approach via Aster Lake is in good shape. Mangin glacier is completely snow covered - no crevasses to worry about. Gulley to the ridge is fair but the traverse (between gulley and ridge) is covered in thin ice. Some wet slides down the face. Best weather ever.
