I (Manrico) lived for two years in southeastern British Columbia where I taught high school. This was several years before I met Liz. I spent many weekends hiking, climbing, and skiing in the local mountains with others who also lived there. One of those was Brian, the brother of one of my students.
In 1979 I decided that being a teacher was a bad career choice for me. I left the area and moved back to Vancouver where I returned to the University of BC to get a Master of Business Administration degree. I had previously gotten a Bachelor of Science (Honours Physics) degree from UBC.
In summer 1980 between my two university years I met up with Brian for a climbing holiday in the Rockies. Our plan was to climb two ice routes in the Columbia Icefields area: the North Face of Mt. Athabasca and the Skyladder route on Mt. Andromeda. From there we planned to climb the Kain Face route on Mt. Robson and the East Ridge of Mt. Edith Cavell. We succeeded on the first two climbs but not on the other two because of weather and fresh snowfall.
Now the photos which are Kodachrome transparencies scanned in 2021. Unfortunately many of the transparencies have degraded with time even though they were stored properly.
If you expand the photo viewer to full page the “Adventures” menu will stop working. This is because of technical issues with the website software. Pick any other menu item and go to that web page. The “Adventures” menu will then work properly.
