At 3507m (11,501'), Mount Bryce is one of the larger 11,000' peaks in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Located in a remote part of the Western Rockies, just south of the Columbia Icefield, it boasts a wild and aesthetic Northeast Ridge that is considered a classic alpine climbing route. The climbing on this route ranges from moderate limestone scrambling to several pitches of exposed rock climbing up to 5.6 and a long and exciting ridge traverse, dodging cornices, over the northeast and central summits to the main, southwest summit, often gained via the steep snow/ice of the Southeast Face. This is followed by a descent down the steep South Glacier to complete the Integral Traverse of this huge and impressive mountain. The climb is done in three days with two bivouacs high up on the mountain. This big route will test your alpine climbing skills and offer you a unique challenge with extraordinary climbing and phenomenal views!
