Description

If you are looking for some of the most classic alpine climbs in the Canadian Rockies, I have the perfect trip for you. It will be 3 days to climb Mounts Victoria (3464 m) and Lefroy (3423 m), two beautiful mountains.

During these days, we will be based in the Abbot Pass Mountain Hut, in Banff National Park. It’s the birth place of alpinism and guiding in Canada. On the first day, we will start from Lake O’Hara and make our way up to the historical hut. We will spend 2 nights there.

The Hut and the Pass were named after Phillip Abbott, who fell from Mount Lefroy in 1896. The hut was built at the pass to facilitate safer ascents of Mounts Lefroy and Victoria.

On the second day, we will be up very early to attempt Mt. Lefroy (3423 m). The peak lies on the eastern side of Abbot Pass.

Then, on the third day we will ascend the South East ridge of Mt. Victoria (3464 m). It lies on the western side of the pass, on the border between Banff and Yoho National Parks. Also, if conditions allow, we will have the possibility of ascending a third peak, Mt. Huber (3370 m), along our descent back to Lake O’Hara.

So, contact me if you want to join me on this great climbing trip! You can send me a request and we can start planning this adventure right away.

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
