Bugaboos Part 1

 

August 2008

This is my third trip in to the Bugaboos this year. It is such a special place and I have been sharing it with lots of talented folks. My partners have been, Lilla Molnar, Jason Kruk and Ines Papert.  I am in Golden on a ‘bad weather day’ to refuel and rejuvenate. I will let the following photos illustrate some of the adventures.

Ines and I (on a ‘rest day’) headed up Snowpatch route. After a noon start, and a few pitches up we made the wise decision to retreat. After some rappelling and down climbing we raced to a cave to sit out an hour-long thunder and lightening storm that filled our cave with pea sized hail! Good guide’s course training :  )

Dinner in the garden

 Nothing like enjoying the valley climate, and fruits of the garden that Chris Brazeau has worked so hard to produce.
