The Mount Athabasca is located in the Columbia Icefield of Jasper National Park (Canada). In particular, its North Face is one of the most accessible and aesthetic steep north face routes in the Canadian Rockies.
It offers glacier travel into a glacial cirque where the North Face Direct is. With snow and ice to 60+ deg and near the top a pitch of easy but exposed mixed climbing (5.4), it is a classic not to be missed by any alpinist.
A guided accent of the North Face requires an early start 3 AM and about 12 hrs return.
I like guiding my friends and clients there. A great mountaineering experience surrounded by breathtaking views.
Please get in touch with me if you want to know more about it. It will be my pleasure to give you more details. Then we will organise this tour according to your expectations!
I also offer other great trips in Canada for the summer months. Check for example this climbing course around Banff or this summer solstice Alpine trip in Alberta. The options in Canada are endless if you love the mountains!

Tax is included in the price.
It is highly recommended to purchase medical insurance (if applicable) and traveler’s trip interruption insurance to cover travel costs and trip costs in the event you have to cancel your trip due to personal illness or injury, family emergency or other personal conflicts. If climbing within Canadian National Parks, the purchase of a park pass is required and this also acts as mountain rescue insurance if needed.
