Comments welcome, I didn't preface the topic with 'Review' but feel free to critique (although keep in mind these were just taken with my small canon digital not a fancy or expensive camera).

Thanks for the comments! I added links to the slightly larger original versions.

Mt. Lefroy is 11,231 ft. (3423 m). We don't have peaks over 13,000 ft in the southern Canadian rockies, there are only 54 above 11,000 (and only 4 above 12,000) so Lefroy is one of the taller ones in our area. Not a serious climber, more of a weekend warrior. You need the basic mountaineering skills and equipment for Lefroy but it's not a hard mountain (rated Alpine II on a scale to VI).

p.s. thanks for the link admedia

great info, thanks. it looks very high, so i thought it was like one of the 'fourteeners' in the US rockies. not that 11.2 is anything the sneeze at! my backpacker past is squarely jealous...

Hey Nordberg, a little more info for ya....south of Yukon/NWT the highest peaks in Canada are the Southern Rockies 11,000ers. Completing this list is no easy task, only 6 people have climbed all 54. A few of the climbs are very serious endevours and all but a couple require the use of ropes. I know a bunch of the 14ers in the US are basically a walk up so it's hard to compare. Weather and conditions are a huge factor, we were going to climb Victoria too this weekend (another 11,000er accessed from the same high alpine hut) but were denied because of a double corniced ridge and high avalanche danger.

Good guess on the elevation though...2,800 ft off ain't that bad!
