Mount Athabasca is located in the Columbia Icefield of Jasper National Park in Canada. The mountain was named in 1898 by J. Norman Collie, who made the first ascent on August 18 of that year. Athabasca is the Cree Indian name for “where there are reeds” which originally referred to Lake Athabasca.
Mt. Athabasca is described as the hydro-graphic apex of North America. Water from the mountain drains in three possible directions—west to the Pacific, east to the Atlantic via Hudson Bay, and north to the Arctic Ocean via the Athabasca and Mackenzie river systems. It stands 3491m/11,453 ft. tall.
