Description

Located in the Canadian Rockies, the iconic Abbot Hut is known for its historic importance and its numerous possibilities of outdoor activities. Even though it is physically challenging, you won’t regret your decision. This 3-day trip will allow you to test your mountaineering skills and enjoy the most surreal views all day long.

We’ll start riding the Lake O’Hara bus in the morning. The mountains we’ll find there are known as the “Gem of the Canadian Rockies” for its amazing hiking and climbing routes. From there, we’ll go towards the Abbot hut.

The following two days, we’ll try to climb the pass at Mount Victoria and Mount Lefroy. Both mountains are unique and offer very different climbing experiences. We’ll then hike back towards Lake O’Hara to take the bus back.

Alpine climbing combines rock climbing, glacier walking, ice climbing and so many other things. This trip will increase your mountaineering skills for future trips. And what’s more fascinating: you’ll have so much fun while learning!

So send your request now and join me on an exhilarating, adrenaline-filled adventure. I can guarantee that you’ll learn a lot and get prepared for bigger climbing goals.

About the guide

I'm a Full Alpine Guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and an Active Member of the Canadian Avalanche Association.
I has climbed across the lower 48 United States, Western Canada, multiple expeditions to Alaska, and Greece. Calling Canmore home, I feel my best attribute is my passion for teaching and sharing what I have learned over the years of being in the mountains. Combining my mountain experience with my thousands of hours as an industrial rope access tech/supervisor, as well as, being a SAR Rope Rescue Leader, my guests can be assured that they are in good hands.

I holds an Adventure Guide Diploma through Thompson Rivers University, which is one of the world’s premiere adventure tourism programs where students spend two years refining their mountain craft and business skills associated with the adventure tourism industry.

I'm proud to be at a point in my career where I can guide full time and I'm able to share my love of the mountains with my guests. I'm always looking forward to the next adventure and building long lasting relationships with my guests. I'm one of those people who’s passion and love for life is contagious.

What a thrilling experience! My husband has been wanting to Ice Climb for some time, so I arranged this during our ski trip to Banff. Needless to say the process was easy, all gear, lunch and transportation was arranged for us. Being on vacation you dont always have everything you need for a trip like this, our guide Patrick thought of everything, he even brought extra clothing for us in case we needed more warmth!! The whole adventure was more than we hoped for, thank you so much to Patrick and the team for making this memorable!!
