Whistler Blackcomb Mountaineering

The Wedge Mountain Whistler BC

Had an amazing trip up to The Wedge with Helen Beynon, we climbed the uber classic NE Arete.  The route was in fine condition and the day was sublime.  I can’t think of a better way to spend a couple days mountaineering in Whistler! Wedge Mountain 2892 m (9488 ft) photos: Paul McSorley

Mount Robson, BC Canada

Mt. Robson 3,954m , 12,972ft, Grade IV Kain Face Summit Attempt

Mt. Robson 3,954m , 12,972ft, Grade IV Kain Face. Mt Robson Kain Face Attempt.

On August 27th Ross Berg, Paul McSorley and I used Yellowhead Helicopters to fly into the Dome of Mt. Robson with five clients. Yellowhead Helicopter’s 206 Pilot did a great job flying us into the 3150m Dome landing in 4 flights. What a great place to be flown into to start a guided trip. We were hoping to guide the trip from the highway, however there was poor weather in the forecast so we decided to just fly everyone into the Dome bellow the Kain Face of Mt Robson. We were not able to sneak up to the summit before the poor weather started. The winds increased to over 100km per hour and it ended up snowing about 40cm. All and all it turned out to be a fantastic guided trip with some inspirational guests

Frendo Spur, (D+ / III 4 1200m) Aiguille du Midi North Face, Chamonix, Mont Blanc

Last week I (Crosby Johnston) had the pleasure to guide the Frendo Spur on the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix Mont Blanc. The Frendo Spur is rated (D+ / III 4 1200m) and is on the North Face Aiguille du Midi. However it totals 1600m of elevation from hut to the Aiguille du Midi Telepherique. A perfect day of…

Ross Berg guiding Cosmiques Arete

Cosmiques Arete Chamonix and Point Lachenal

Ross Berg and I (Crosby Johnston) had a great day out guiding the Point Lachenal and the Cosmiques Arete in Chamonix just steps away from the Aiguille du Midi Chamonix Mont Blanc: 3842m above sea level.  Both climbs are ultra classic route in a stunning location.  Photos don’t justify or come anywhere close to capturing the…

Our route up Mt Blanc

Mont Blanc Summit trip.

Yesterday Altus Mountain Guides Guided Mont Blanc. We got to the Summit at 930 am July 4th. The conditions on the mountain were near perfect. One day earlier people had to turn around because of Avalanche hazard on the Mountain.  Today the weather is poor with rain in the Valley and clouds covering the Summit.…

Squamish Climbing

Yesterday I got to get out and do some climbing in the morning at Chech Canyon Squamish BC.  It was a busy day as you can see.  Took a bunch of photos with my new camera for the people at the crag.  Another day climbing in Squamish even though it slashed rain the day before.…
