Athabasca / North Face / 1990

Another fun route that tends to be a bit crowded. Guy and I had just come from the Bugs and wanted to do something easy in the Icefields Region. The summer got increasingly warm and after this route, the isotherm moved higher than all the summits and stayed there. That effectively ended the mountaineering. I did want to see the Emperor Face so we splurged on a heli ride, camped with a view and hiked out the next day. After that bit of decadence, we pointed the van south towards Wyoming and the Wind River Range. Our long summer in Canada was over.
