Mount Andromeda, Andromeda Strain, Columbia Icefields Group. In April Barry Blanchard, Tim Friesen and I completed the often tried “Andromeda Strain.” The route involved mixed climbing up to 5.9, A2 and required one bivouac. It is recommended but not in the summer when severe rockfall could be experienced. It ascends the obvious couloir in the east face.
