Mt. Huber. G. Collier was of the party which made the first ascent in 1903 (E. Tewes, C. Bohren, C. Kaufmann). Their route, little likely to be repeated, is not given in the Guidebook, but is nevertheless remarkable. Leaving the chalet at Lake Louise at 4.30 A.M. they reached Abbot Pass at 9.00, ascended the Victoria ridge to within 30 minutes of the summit, whence a couloir was descended (bergschrund) to the saddle, and Mt. Huber attained by its N. face. On returning, the party went to the summit of Mt. Victoria. Tewes gives no further times except that they were back in Abbot Pass at 5.30 P.M. and at the chalet at 8.00.
