INTRO

I'd wanted to climb Edith Cavell ever since I flew past it doing aerial photography with John Scurlock in May 2012.

The East Ridge of Edith Cavell is a classic Canadian Rockies route, offering mixed climbing at a moderate grade, and sees a large number of ascents each season. The route was first climbed by Conrad Kain in 1924. The route can be completed comfortably in one day, given an early start from the parking lot. Depending on the snow and weather the route can be bare rock the whole way, or snow and ice requiring crampons and an axe. Most of the climbing is 4th class and the rock is generally good.

Interesting tidbit: The mountain was named for an English nurse executed by the Germans during World War I for helping people held captive to escape.
