Mt Colin – 2 or 3 – Colin traverse grade III 5.6

Another Jasper classic that takes us to the Colin hut. A quaint little alpine club hut built for climbers. The hike into the hut itself is a 3-5 hour journey. From the hut the climbs up the face go up a marathon of rock (19 pitches of 5.4 to 5.7 of continuous climbing take us directly to the summit!). Alternatively the Colin traverse follows a sharp and exposed ridge line with sections of scrambling and short pitches of up to 5.6 technical climbing.
