Climbing A2 and Eisenhower Tower

Storm Mountain from Eisenhower Tower.

Spent the past two days between knee deep snow on the Icefields Parkway and warm stone on Castle Mountain. The Rockies have been getting DUMPED on this month and it feels like mid winter in the high mountains. Had the pleasure of climbing both days with Sheri B from Norway. We wanted to do a North Face Route on Athabasca but after swimming across the Boundary Glacier, we opted for something a little less conditions dependant.

We forgot our skis :(

Like a boss.

Cool colors in the Rockies.
