Mt. Deltaform Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Deltaform from summit of Neptuak
Peak numero eight. The tallest of the ten, offering reputed 'rank' Rockies rock. Most ascents are via the Northwest Ridge which summits Neptuak (nine) along the way. The infamous Super Couloir authored by George Lowe and Chris Jones ('73) is the real line, but if you're looking here for beta on such a route, you're a dummy.

The shale isn't the worst up there surprisingly...
Moraine Lake to Wenkchemna Pass. The Northwest ridge of Neptuak drops right to the pass, quite obvious.
