Trip Report

On the shortest day of 2012 I was joined by Wietse and Kelly on an ascent of Mount Gordon on the Wapta Ice fields in bitterly cold but clear conditions. Of course, this wasn't my first time ascending this peak. It was the very first summit on the Wapta for me, back in 2006 on a bitterly cold January day.
