Description 

Mount Murchison is a huge peak with high cirques on the east side of the Icefields Parkway, just before you reach the junction of highway 11 (David Thompson Hwy to Nordegg) and the Saskatchewan River Crossing.

Park just over 5 miles south of the river crossing (junction with hwy 11) where a drainage comes down and under the road. Walk up this drainage until it is better to move north into the trees. This is a long hike and if fresh snow - could take hours

Most climbs face west and get early morning sun.

Getting There 

Depending on the line - park along the road around 5 miles south of the river crossing.
