Alberta, Rocky Mountains, Mt. Andromeda

On July 21, 1979, after climbing Mt. Andromeda via the Skyladder, Slawomir Lobdozinski and Jennifer Smith (ages unknown) of Edmonton were descending a gully into the Androm- eda-Athabasca col. Smith lost her footing and fell approximately 300 feet over loose rock and landed on a 30-degree snow slope. She received a broken tibia and lacerations on the head. The party was travelling unroped.
