Trip Report

We scrambled Mount Strom as part of our Assiniboine approach from Assiniboine Lake. On our way over the col, before we descended to the hut I mentioned to Kev that maybe we should bag Strom "since it's right there anyway". He agreed and we spent 20 minutes (easy) negotiating rubbly slopes to the summit. The views were amazing of course. If it were summer time and we had more daylight I would've trumbled up Wedgewood too but it wasn't and we didn't so I didn't. ;-)

[The very impressive (intimidating?) north face of Mount Assiniboine]


[Just a scree grunt!]
 


[An old register on Strom - in better shape than a lot of others around here.]

[Mount Assiniboine is ready for us! The north face is getting lots of warm, late day sun and we like that - it's melting lingering snow off. ++]
