Mount Alberta is a high mountain with a broad, majestic summit crest. Its summit towers almost 8,000 feet above the Athabaska River, and the moutain is steep on all sides. Much of the terrain on the mountain is made up of loose rock and falling stones. This is perhaps the most difficult climb of the Canadian Rockies, and was the last of the major summits there to be successfully ascended.
