Mt Bryce from Mt King Edward

 

What do you want to climb today? Here are other mountains I've enjoyed climbing in the Rockies, Alps, Cascades and Sierras. These range from scrambles, slogs and walk-ups to more serious mountaineering and north face alpine climbs. I used a guidebook for many of these. (or, you could also hire a guide)!

Western Canada Peaks

Many of these mountains are members of the elite 11,000-foot high Canadian Rockies summits. So far, only two people (Calgarians) have climbed all 50 of these peaks. Many others (like me), are still trying. Unlike bigger, but easier Rockies summits in USA, undertaking to climb all 50 Canadian peaks can be a lifetime goal requiring a high degree of skill, perseverance, good planning and luck. Access can be as challenging as the actual climb. Crampons, ice axes and technical climbing gear are all necessary. These mountains make the Colorado 14000'ers look like a walk in the park.

 

USA Peaks

These summits are mainly American highpoints which I have ascended. Nice getaways and not too tough (except Granite Peak!).

 

European Alps

Send me to the Alps; spoil me rotten! Give me a gondola, a mountain hut, a soft bed and cooked meals. Oh, and I hate being alone...invite 150 others too. (Pardon the sarcasm; but that's how it was.)
