I like the telephoto - That is Cascade North, which has a height that rivals that of the scramble "Cascade" summit, and is a summit that interests me - Jones lists it as Class 4. The route in his...

That looks like a nice way to go about it. The sidehilling and description of crappy rock quality via the normal route always made me decide to go climb something else. This may make me go get at it....

I think that cabin has been taken down. I'm pretty sure we hiked through that spot - the trees were all cut down for the construction of it, and there was a flat spot that looked very much like the...

Yep, we did a loop by going up Anklebiter, and then turning right off the summit and down another ridge (with a vague highpoint that is called Bluemat Hill). This worked really well insomuch that we...

Nice. I continued up main fork following those tracks about 2 weeks ago. Curious to see where people got to before giving up. Interestingly they turned up a side valley on climbers left, after only a...

For my perspective, you certainly can't go wrong with photos of tarns in the summer, and goats. Lovely.

Yep, I agree - it's a mixed bag, but I try to see the positives, although I know that the rapid change is also presenting many problems. If only for new opportunities to explore, then yep, some...

Very nice. Coronet at the head of the valley presents such a dramatic and geologically graceful wall. I know that Steven has ascended it, and Vern and I did have plans last year, but bailed as we...

Yeah, the recession of glaciers is definitely rather rapid, and connected with that I wonder at the mountains that are released from their grip - will we see some dramatic collapses in...

Im certainly not the only person who is interested, for one reason or another, to see the rapid recession of ice in the Rockies and what that might mean for us in a variety of ways. The Bow...

Nice talking points. Cataract Pass is one of those places that never seems to get to the top of my priorities, yet when I see photos makes me wonder why!

Not the best shot, but shows the glacier and cliffs. Could traverse above the glacier, but would need to ensure snow conditions were favourable. I think the higher traverse would work best.

Oh right, I see that line now. I think the line you have closer to Thompson would be useable though - and would only require continuing along the bench from Iceberg lake. Good spot.

Haha, skiing tomorrow, Zeljko, let's see how the knee responds to that! It's hard sitting and waiting for the body to knit itself back together.

I agree with the sentiment - it you can force yourself to grind through the first 5-8km on bike, the rest is lovely. I've been twice - once on ascent of Blackface...
