Solo  Sucess!

The last day of a one-week trip in the Bugs, may have been our best of the lot. Super enjoyable climbing... had to grab that ridge tight to keep from getting blown off by the wind.

Great climb  Sucess!

Left the parking lot at 8pm, hiked until 1am and camped near the base of Snowpatch-Bugaboo Col. Started behind 2 parties (dodging basketball sized rocks up the Col). Soloed up the west ridge and arrived at the summit at 1pm. Back in camp by 4:30. Hiked out the next morning.

West Ridge  Sucess!

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 and saw a bunch of roped guided groups get screwed by the rain.

Cool  Sucess!

We climbed it with Rime Ice. Made things interesting. But still an amazing route with views to die for.
