Mt. Alberta in extremely dry "gift" conditions, showing the Japanese Route. Neither ice axe nor crampons were needed for our ascent. Would you be so lucky.

Initial approach

Brutus indicates on this photo that the initial approach is around the corner. When we climbed this in 2003, we climbed more directly up to Brutus' first yellow dot from down and left. Our route is shown in this photo. This is mostly 3rd/4th class with a bit of low 5th. We didn't rope up to climb this section, but we did do 2, maybe 3, rappels through here on the descent.
