Kain Route*** AD
[Climber on Bugaboo Spire East Ridge, 2 kb]Ascend the Bugaboo-Snowpatch col from the Applebee dome campsite. Leave axes and crampons here, and head up the south ridge of Bugaboo spire. Route finding can be difficult, stay more or less on the ridge. Scramble to start with. Most parties rope up at the bottom of a two pitch corner (5.4?), followed by a short ridge traverse, then the famous (crux 5.6?) pitch around the Gendarme. A further scramble leads to the summit.
