Mount Bryce is a major Rockies Peak that until lately had seen comparatively few ascents. It sits at the western edge of famous Columbia Icefield. A recent logging road has whittled the approach down to a comfortable 3 day round trip from Calgary. Easiest route is via south glacier, NE ridge traverse and north face are still major undertakings.

Alan Kane on Jan 25, 2000We did it via south glacier. Even with a logging road approach, this is still an adventurous 3 day trip. Some years, the peak doesn't really get in good shape, and it is a very remote location,...
