Bugaboos

Bugaboo Provincial Park is Canada’s mecca for alpine climbing. Visible from near my house, they aren’t far away as the crow flies, but it’s a six hour drive around to the East Kootenays to the access road and the 4-hour slog to Applebee Dome, the base for climbing these stunning spires.

My fingers are still recovering from the course granite and their constant trembling because of overwhelmingly fun climbing. Here are a few shots from the trip:

Getting vertical

Early summer is a great time to get out on the rock and prepare for the alpine climbing season and, with any luck, actually get out into the alpine. I’ve managed to clear off a week and therefore, Bugaboos here I come! Here are some recent climbing images. Back in a week with hopefully a few more.
