Mount Macbeth from Mount Pattison
A striking peak at the head of Fitzsimmons Creeks in Garibaldi Provincial park. The Curtain, Naden, and Macbeth glaciers are north, east, and south of the summit. Mount Macbeth is usually climbed as part of the Spearhead ski traverse. The east side on snow is the standard route. Provides for some excellent ski descents.


1. NE Ridge (1969) E. Buss, B. Ellis, P. Macek, P. Starr. Glacier/4th class. Perhaps easier in winter, when the bergshrund is closed. This route is NTD and popular with parties doing the Spearhead Traverse.
2. S Face NTD. Ascend from Macbeth Glacier onto rock.
3. SW Face NTD. From Macbeth Glacier, ascend rock to summit.
