Waddington or Bugaboos?

by Diggler » Mon Jul 22, 2013 8:26 am

Want to do something big during the short Canadian alpine window. Waddington (1st choice) or Bugaboos highest on the list for now. I could be available by ~ August 1. Seattle-North Cascades-ish until then. About me- I've got a ride, a rack, & a rope. Good safety record, bad humor. Lead 5.10ish, WI4, C2, etc. etc. on a good day. Climbs I've done include all of the CO & CA 14ers, Pothole Dome, 56/58 of the CA county highpoints, Half Dome, Nose & Salathe routes, ... Easy to get along with. Totally down to do some cragging before committing to these big objectives. Anyway, if either of these objectives sound as incredible to you as they do to me & you're up for an awesome adventure, THE TIME IS NOW- carpe diem!!! Let me know!

I am actually going to be up in BC/Washington from August 9th - Sept 1st and am lining up partners to climb with. I am a 5.10a Trad leader and have been building my portfolio over the last few year. I have been ticking all of the mountains that I have climbed here on Summitpost.org (minus the ones there aren't pages for) and also I have started ticking my climbs and routes on Mountainproject.com (here http://mountainproject.com/u/mooner//107468926). Also I am some what of a photographer and have been messing around with making a FB page of some pictures that I have taken of trips at https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Moon- ... 0204766692

I can't make a suggestion based on climbing experience but based on the numerous choices all within close proximity of each other. AND maybe one of the most beautiful areas in the world......The Kananaski's just out of Canmore. Here's some ideas, Dow lives there about 6 months of the year so he has a wealth of knowledge.
