Mounts Aberdeen & Haddo Peak are an excellent ascent options for those looking for a single day itinerary, departing from the village of Lake Louise. The ascent of the NE Face of Mount Aberdeen is nearly entirely glaciated, requiring teams to climb the peaks lower alpine ice tongue to gain access to the upper mountain. With continued glacial recession, this ice feature is continually gaining steepness with each passing season - providing up to 4 pitches of 60˚-70˚ alpine ice for access to mid-mountain. From here, your guide will often switch tack stretching the rope out between you to begin to travel the more mellow glacial features mid mountain. As the summit approaches, a bergschrund or two add a little extra flavor before arriving on the summit ridge for a quick bump to the summit.
Teams looking for a full day in the mountains may elect to summit Mount Haddo as well (3070M), before reversing the ascent route, descending the Saddleback Trail and arriving back in Lake Louise.
