Mount Olive

Mount Olive Trip Report (#12541)

One of the many great peaks on the Wapta Icefields. From Bow Hut an hour skinup gets you to the Saint Nicholas/Olive col and from there you walk/kick steps up the ridge to the False summit. The true summit is at the far end of the ridge, directly above Vulture Col. Watch the cornice on your way over.I soloed this peak during a trip across the Wapta with friends and stepped threw a little bit of the cornice. Awesome views south towards Balfour Hut and Mt Balfour.
