While at the lookout near the Plain of Six Glaciers tea house the above view can be seen of the Death Trap leading up to Abbott Pass above Lake Louise. On a clear sunny day the hut can be seen without the use of binoculars. It is one of the many fantastic views of this particular hike.
The pass is named after Philip S. Abbott who died from a fall on Mount Lefroy. A more detailed account can be found at Peakfinder.com .
For avid climbers there are a variety of ways to get to the Abbott Pass Hut which was built by the Alpine Club of Canada, but the easiest is from Lake O’Hara on the west side.
The hike to the Plain of Six Glaciers is coming, so this could be classified as a bit of a teaser. I'm organizing the photos into their sequence.
