Trip Report

Steven, Ben and I spent a few days in early September 2014 in the Woolley / Diadem area, just north of the Columbia Icefields in Jasper National Park. I approached the bivy site on Thursday and spent the first night there solo, a wonderfully relaxing afternoon and night despite doing battle with an aggressive pack rat (I won btw).

Is the hut on the "wrong" side of the shoulder to climb Woolley/Diadem?

For  the normal route, yes. But there's a nice alpine II coulior route up Woolley from the hut side that could be used to also bag Diadem. The only problem with that would be the descent which would either be the standard route or back up Woolley...

Stunning - love this one
