Alpine Climbs in the Canadian Rockies

Alpenglow on Glacier Peak from the Abbott Pass Hut

Here are a few of the climbs I've done in the Rockies. Mountaineering is a rather recent endeavour of mine, but dominates most of my thoughts these days. Scrambling will most likely become a shoulder season activity from now on(!). The only climb outside of the Rockies I've done is the Breithorn in Switzerland, (see outside Canadian Rockies page), and the rest mostly fall into the summer of 2006, when my friend Mark and I somehow managed to get up 5 11,000 foot peaks in 8 days. 'Twas a great week.
