Twelve things I learned in the Bugaboos! First, go together not alone. Second, more leg training couldn't hurt... Avadcado.blogspot.com. Spectacular spot at the top of Snowpatch! at The Bugaboos

@timbanfield coming up the last few meters of Wildflowers on the West face of Snowpatch spire. This route follows a 5 pitch corner system followed by a buttress leading straight to the summit. Hard to think of a cleaner line! Happy to finish it after a hail storm had forced me off of it 5 years ago. #bugaboo #granite #bcparks #canadaiscooler #purcells #snowpatchspire

Bugaboos || So my #100DaysOfArt challenge continues as I keep exploring with different media. I ordered myself a travel set of watercolors and I have been obsessed with painting mountain landscapes the last couple of days. I can't believe I never gave watercolor a chance before. Can't wait to bring it with me on hikes for some outdoor painting 🎨🌲🖼️ #mountainartist . . . . #inspiredbyoutdoors #snowpatchspire #bugaboos #hellobc #thekootenays #kootenayart #exploreandcreate #artspiration #mountainillustration #bcartist #choosemountains at Bugaboo Glacier

What a place! The #Bugaboos know how to amaze. Here's @dustincomyn on the way to #bugaboospire after soloing the West Ridge of #pigeonspire. On the right #snowpatchspire that we summited the next day via the South West Ridge. at Bugaboo Provincial Park

@eticemic

August can't come soon enough. Just got home from a quick scouting mission to the #bugaboos and am already ready to go back and have some real fun. That place is something special. Don't think I'm quite ready to tackle #snowpatchspire (behind me in the pic), but I think I might just have what it takes to tag #pigeonspire and #bugaboospire (at least as a dependable second). The devil is always in the details, but I think I finally have the partner, the fitness, the core skills, and the gear to move gently past hard exposed #scrambles and onto some technical #alpine #multi-pitch #climbing. I have been dreaming of pulling off a "real" ascent like this for years. Can't wait for go time. .. #rockclimbing #trad #alpineclimbing #glacier #glaciers #mountains #mountainclimbing #scrambling #exposure #purcells #fourthclass #class4 at The Bugaboos

Here we see the amazing south face of Snowpatch Spire, 3084m, (10,118'), in the Bugaboo Group, Northern Purcell Mountains, in British Columbia, Canada. An outstanding climb, for those who are up to it. In 1959 I made the first solo ascent, and I took this picture at 5:30 pm, on August 16,1964 using Kodak X-plus B&W film, red filter, and 150mm Schneider Symmar lens. ___________________________________________ 102771 - South Face of Snowpatch Spire, Bugaboos, BC PHOTO COMMENT: The Bugaboos are truly a Valhalla for climbers. The firm granite in an alpine setting offer just about anything an alpinist could wish for. Only bad weather spoils many would-be ascencionists plans, and there is plenty of that! ___________________________________________ Another classic ©Ed Cooper Photo 🌄.

A cool shot rapping down to meet the Gendarme. This jetting spire gets its name from guarding the decent path of the NE ridge. Once on the Gendarme you must rap into the unknown as the ledge below is not visible until after you have gone over the ledge. ------------------------------ Big thanks to @bluecollarclimbing for getting the shot!

Bugaboo and Snowpatch Spire in the early morning light. I took this shot as we climb up the Crescent Col in the dark. The NE Ridge Grade IV 5.8 can be seen leading up the ramp on the right. The exposure on the ridge traverse and endless landscapes make this climb one of a kind. This is what big mountain dreams are made of 👌

@dugmcc

@weebitwindy and I ran up to check out the Bugaboos yesterday. The Tom Evan Memorial route, freed last year by @willstanhope is honestly the most proud, impressive line I have seen anywhere. You can't quite make it out in this shot but it splits the cleanest blank bit of perfect vertical granite on the right of the Snowpatch Spire via a perfect tips finger crack. Recent snow meant the whole spire seemed alive, constantly shedding huge chunks of snow and ice that would fall cleanly hundreds of meters to the glacier below. Clouds came in just after this and we narrowly avoided a full white out which would have been embarrassing in my shorts! #Bugaboos #snowpatchspire #splitter #tourist #hiking #Canada

@weberphotography

Snowpatch Spire is the centerpiece of the Bugaboos. Full value days are unavoidable considering the shortest route up is 12 pitches long. Half way up the route and looking back down you realize how insignificant we really are.

Tip toeing across Pigeon Spire's West ridge in the Purcell Mountain range in Canada. This route is not technical but the views and exposure are spectacular.

A shot from our recent climbing trip in the Bugaboos. We had the opportunity to climb the North East Ridge of Bugaboo Spire. This route is a classic alpine rock route of the highest caliber. Amazing landscapes with high exposure. -------------------------------- Brandon Prince traversing across Bugaboo Spire summit with Snowpatch Spire in the background

Praying to the weather and mountain gods for their blessing this weekend! The Bugaboo-Snowpatch Col is our primary access to the Vowell glacier where the Howsers and Pigeon Spire live. 👀 It is also notorious for being steep and a funnel for dangerous rock fall as the temperatures rise and the number of incidents continue upward every year...... #bekind #mothernature ************************************* My shot of @juvalvictor and Justin last month getting ready for our saunter to pigeon on top of a stable and happy col. at Bugaboo Spire

@james_vilimaa looking across to Snowpatch Spire, dealing with the hard fact that we had to bail from our plan to climb the NE ridge of Bugaboo Spire because of slower parties ahead of us. An already long day would have turned into a 2 day epic with wet weather forecast.

@awesome.ology

We ventured to the #Bugaboos for five days. The ascent to base camp is pretty tortuous and steep, especially when we're carrying packs weighing over 60lbs. But with views like this, it's hard to complain (too much). 1/3
