A 3-day trip on one of the most classic climbs in the Rockies: Mts. Victoria and Lefroy, from Abbot Pass. You can also ascend Mt. Huber if conditions allow.
If you are looking for some of the most classic alpine climbs in the Canadian Rockies, we have the perfect trip for you. It will take 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.
Also, you can take a look at the 2-day climbing trip to Mt Athabasca (3491 m)
