Description

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.
