Canadian Rockies with Chris Kulp
Walking below Mount Edith Cavell

Return to recent trips page

In late June of 2001, Chris Kulp and I spent 10 days climbing in the Canadian Rockies. As is not so uncommon in the Rockies we were chased around by the weather, trying to make the best of the ever changing mix of sun, cloud rain and snow. Here are is one of the climbs we enjoyed.

On one particularly rainy day, being unable to climb, we drove north to Jasper and on our way south stopped in at Edith Cavell, just to have a look. Neither of us had been there before and both were struck with the beauty of the area and the immensity of the peak towering overhead.

Just a few moments from the car and we are under a huge alpine wall.


Looking up, quite steeply, at the hanging Angel Glacier and the lower part of the upper wall.

The small lake at the foot of the face.
