A Week in the Bugaboos – Photo Gallery

Photos by Luke Laeser and Mike Brumbaugh – Mikey and I finally made a trip to the famed Bugaboos within the mighty Purcell Mountains at the end of July, 2007. Mikey’s been a good friend since we met sport climbing at Rifle in Colorado, and we’d been talking about taking a trip up to this fantastic British Columbian spot after years of drooling over photos. The well traveled trade routes from Steck and Roper’s 50 Classic Climbs have been one of my passions since I first started climbing in high school, and now, I was finally headed for the splitter granite cracks of the Beckey-Chouinard (West Buttress) on South Howser and the East Ridge of Bugaboo Spire. Read the trip report. Visit Super Natural British Columbia.
