One of the most remote climbs that a mountaineer or tourist could wish for is located in the Northern Rocky Mountains in Canada. It is to be found in Mount Nimbus, which reaches an altitude of 8,698 feet high, and its peak is only accessible by way of a 1.6-mile long via ferrata, a type of protected climbing route. This method of climbing is aided by steel cables attached to the rock surface. Mount Nimbus is known to many, it hasn't attracted a serious following yet. Access is not practically possible by car or foot, and its remoteness makes some think twice about checking it out.
