Thank you, Andrew and Yury! The climb of 3,000 ft. is risky because of falling rock (a few people have died.) Mainly though, it is a very steep slog of two steps up, one step back. Also, you need to watch that you bear right near the top or you could climb into the outhouse! :)

The Climb To Abbot's Hut


Steve Harrington


Photograph - Photography


Abbot's Hut (on the ridge top left of the image) at over 9.500 ft. on a col in Canadian Rockies sleeps 22 climbers. The outhouse was the highest building in Canada in 1980. The climb up the scree slope is a steep grind that is eased somewhat when you can use occasional snow patches. It is nestled between Mount Victoria and Mount Lefroy, straddling the continental divide, which, in this region, defines the boundary between Banff National Park in Alberta and Yoho National Park in British Columbia.
The pass and the hut are named after Philip Stanley Abbot, who became the first mountaineering fatality in North America after he fell in an attempt to make the first ascent of Mount Lefroy in 1896. The hut was originally built in 1922 by Swiss guides working for the Canadian Pacific Railway to shelter clients attempting to climb Victoria and Lefroy. Much of the construction material was carried from Lake Louise on horseback across the Victoria Glacier and winched or carried on guides' backs up the pass on a route known as The Deathtrap because of its exposure to avalanches and crevasses.
