DigglerWest ridge- what fun!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2013

Diggler

On our way back from East Creek bivy, walked right by Pigeon. While it started drizzling right around when we reached the Pigeon-Howser col, from how fun it sounded from all the others who'd described it, I really wanted to do it, and decided to try to wait for a break in the weather for the opportunity. Bill was too beat from the day and night before, and kept going back to Applebee. The rock seemed dry enough when I go to the start of the route and got my stuff together, so I went for it. Started up the ridge at 14.44; climbing was super fun, a little route-finding involved, but was at the summit before I knew it (15.19). What a gem of a climb- how cool to have it to myself, too! Hung out for a few minutes before heading down (didn't want to push my luck with the weahter, which looked threatening enough). Back down to the base of the route by 15.55.

While not AS fun as Tenaya Peak, still a delightful climb. Glad I was able to get it in!

On a 40% chance of t-storms in the afternoon we got up and hiked up to it by 7:30am or so. Soloed the route in about 40 minutes to the summit and back down. Saw a bunch of roped guided groups get screwed by the rain. Was our first climb in the Bugs. Great outing.

Climbed the west ridge on my first day in the Bugs. Fun route with great weather. We spent several hours on the summit taking in our surroundings.

This is a hard route to beat for pure fun, easy climbing. We soloed the route from the base of the ridge in about 40 minutes after climbing the Kain Route earlier in the day. Even if you climb harder, don't overlook this one!

What an awesome place! Adrian and I ran up and down in a day- I can't recall what the rush was. During my year and a half 'sabbatical'. Thanks Ade.

Did the West Ridge with Brian (dunsum) as a quick solo. Some Scotsmen made fun of us for bringing our climbing shoes on the route, but as they pitched out the 5.4 ridge in their mountaineering boots, I think we had the last laugh.

Excellent climb!! We aproached from the SE as the Bugaboo-Snowpatch Col was out of condition.

It was an incredible sunny day. It's a solid climb, on trusty granite. Nice drops, and beautiful views.

Fantastic climb! My sons Christoph & Alexander joined on this epic climb. Our guides from Canadian Mountain Holidays showed us the way and made this one of the most enjoyable climbs. Spectacular scenery, the solid black granite as dramatic contrast to the surrounding glaciers. The weather was perfect for photos!

Highly recommended for anyone venturing into the dramatic spires of the Bugaboos!

AWESOME CLIMB. One of the best to date. Getting to the col, between snowpatch, and buguboo spires proved to be very interesting.
