Funny to see so many Mount Amery trip reports now. Would have been nice when we were trying to get to that confluence. We actually bivied just below the large terminal morraine so if we hadn't gone all the way to that ridiculous confluence we could have easily made the summit. We were postholing up to our knees along the ridge to get to the confluence so just didn't have enough energy to make the quick jaunt up the ridge to get the summit. Figured why bother. Summit is just a arbitrary as a confluence. haha Always wanted to go back though. Congrats on making the summit!

Hey Brendan, the Internet sure makes more mountains accessible for people doesn't it? And yes - you are right about the summit being as arbitrary as anything else in the end. :)

I cant believe you got to have that view from your bivy!
