Made my 2nd trip to the Bugs with my steadfast climbing partner, Mark, and thought I'd post pictures.

Minimal snow this last season, so things have REALLY melted out since I saw it in August 2 years ago. The Bugaboo Glacier and col crossing are a mess; lots of ice crevasses to cross, and a loose sandy/rocky scramble after trekking around the gigantic bergschrund. The descent is now a bolted rappel, to avoid tossing rocks down at your fellow climbers.

We were in for 6 days, and climbed 3 routes:
1) West face of Snowpatch: Furry Pink, Grade IV, 5.10c, 8 pitches
2) West face of Snowpatch: Kraus-McCarthy route; Grade IV, 5.8+, 8 pitches
3) West Buttress of South Howser Tower (Beckey-Chouinard Route; one of the "50 North American Classics"!!!). Grade V, 5.10, 15 pitches. +2500 feet of technical climbing, mostly sustained 5.8-5.9 strenuous crack

We had a few hot days of sunshine, and the usual p.m. thunderstorms on 2 days, one of which dumped rain and brought a magnificently beautiful and booming lightening array. It hailed and snowed toward the end of our long day on the Beckey-Choinard route, with a lot of static electricity up top during the rappel, which was pretty frightening.

Don't buy the Mountaineers book; it's terrible (minimal descriptions of routes, and not always quite accurate!) Buy the Canadian guide, for sure.

Go! It's beautiful.

You picked the right week. I was there the next and it rained, sleeted, snowed, and thundered almost every day. Now the Snowpatch-Bugaboo col is really a mess.

Beautiful!

edit: ...I now have a clear objective for why I should learn to climb cracks...
