Mt Alberta - ""I first saw it from the air in 1944, and was greatly impressed by it; for it is a peak of terrific aspect, a wall-sided elemental wedge rising sheer out of the valleys and surrounding glaciers. Isolated as it is and exposed to the full force of the western weather, it remains iced and utterly impregnable for weeks, and in a bad season months, on end."""
