Description 

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

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.

Solo up as high as you dare, then probably 3 long pitches with the last lead being the crux. Pick the best ice, but you should end up on the right side on top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
