Mount Alfred

Mt Alfred lies deep in the Coast Mountain Range of British Columbia, Canada. It is a fairly straightforward climb of mainly snow slopes of around 35 degrees. Generally, ice axe and crampons are the only equipment needed but people should be roped up because you have to cross a good sized glacier before attempting the slopes.

The hike in to the mountain is one of the most difficult parts of the climb, requiring packing a 75 pound pack up steep dirt trails.

The trip should take about 5 days round trip. Two camps are required on the approach.

    A great day for climbing Alfred ! Started clouding in on the summit so our time spent up there was cut short.
