Mount Whymper
Banff National Park, Alberta
October 6, 2001

A delightful scramble that lends itself to a variety of ways up. Lots to explore
here!
Although it's enjoyable climbing straight up, we almost became carried
away before realizing we had to traverse left a bit well below the summit.

Mount Whymper from the highway


Near the start of the climb, a stairway points the way


These aren't small steps!


Storm Mountain


Higher up, the slope opens up


Looking back down the gully


Plenty of scrambling possibilities


Which way to go?


These cliffs look impossible but there's a hidden slot chimney


We squeezed up the chimney (mouse over to view the bottom)


After a time, we realized we had to traverse left to gain the ridge


This mountain goat fled when we neared the summit


Boom Mountain
