Bugaboo NE Ridge from saddle
Paul Jay approaching the NE Ridge from the saddle. The route begins at the white ledge above the shadow line. Our first view of this was from the top of Crescent Spire, behind the photographer here. We watched a climber ascend the crack above the left side of the snowpatch unroped and wondered if we'd be able to do that. Turned out it wasn't that steep; we walked beside it. There's some class 3 getting to the ledge, but it's reasonable, even in boots with a pack.
