Trip Report

On Sunday, September 09 Kevin Barton and I managed to bag both Victoria South and Huber in a long (ok for me - normal for Kev!) 15 hour day. It took us quite a bit longer than we planned because of new snow (2-6") and ice. Victoria was much more than just a scramble with snow and ice on down-sloping slabs and exposed rock. We were in crampons for over 12 hours on rock, snow and ice so our feet were NOT happy with us at the end of the day!

Hi Vern, I have enjoyed reading your great posts and viewing your wonderful photos for many years. I live vicariously by them here in southern Ontario! You don't need to post this publicly, as it is just about a couple of small issues. The link to the Mt. Huber page appears to be broken. Also, on your Sony A7S camera page, you erroneously refer to Adobe Creative Cloud as 'Cloud Control' -) BTW, I had the good fortune of reaching Victoria south peak on the Labour Day weekend of '82, in beautiful weather. You were very adventurous to continue over to the stunning looking summit of Mt. Huber.

BTW, we both know Bob Parr. Bob is a very dear friend. In my last years in Calgary (can't recall if it was summer of '83 or '84) we went up Cascade, which was my last trip (for a while) in the Rockies, while it was Bob's first peak.

Thanks Henry! Issues fixed. I'll try to keep the pics and trips coming for you. :)
