Ascent of Mt. Sturdee. After ascending the Southeast Couloir, a short traverse to the northeast brings you to the start of a full rope pitch of easy rock (5.5) with one horn to sling for pro. P2 goes up a wide (5.4) chimney that tops out right below the summit. To descend we down-climbed the chimney and set up a rap that brings you back down to where you can traverse back to the southeast couloir. Approach from high camp is up and over the Assiniboine-Strom Col and then down to and across Icefield, and then south up along the East Ridge of Mt. Asinniboine to the Assiniboine-Sturdee Col. Cross the col over to the hidden couloir (8/91).
