Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mount Athabasca is located in the Columbia Icefield of Jasper National Park in Canada. The mountain was named in 1898 by J. Norman Collie, who made the first ascent on August 18 of that year.[1] Athabasca is the Cree Indian name for "where there are reeds" which originally referred to Lake Athabasca.One of the most prominent features of Mt. Athabasca, is a horned shaped tip near the top called the "Silverhorn." The Silverhorn is one of the easier routes to the summit but requires more caution and ability than the normal route because of blue ice and falling ice from other parties.show more
