4 out of 5 stars North Ridge

My introduction to the Canadian Rockies. This mountain took me three attempts to climb (first attempt in November!) before I learned that these mountains are very condition dependent. Third attempt was nothing like the first, climbed to the top unroped and had to do two rappels on the descent.

5 out of 5 stars Wonderful climb

One of the most impressive peaks in the world IMO. Decided to climb this from my little camp at Lake Magog. Took a while to get up to near the hut. Bivvied, then made the plan to try the N Ridge. There were a couple other parties on it so route finding was easy (this made me decide to finish it). Took a short rope and a few pieces of gear, which I used to rap down the red band of rocks. Made it back to the hut around mid afternoon and back to my lakeside camp an hour or so after that.
