3176m, 12 pitches. 5.8 / D-

The North east ridge on Bugaboo Spire was made famous by Roper and Steck's book Fifty Classic Climbs in North America. Like so many Bugaboos climbs, the climbing is varied, the rock good and the position spectacular. A word of caution though, more parties have been benighted on the Northeast Ridge than all the other routes in the Bugaboos combined. Traditionally only half the parties on this route make it back to camp before dark.
