“A Vintage View” by Ivan Petrov

“A Vintage View”

Expedition leader Bryan Thompson pauses during his ascent of Bugaboo Spire to enjoy the view of the Kootenay Rockies to the east. Four replica pairs of hobnail boots with tricouni edge nails similar to those used by Conrad Kain in 1916 were custom made in New Zealand for the 2016 expedition team to make the experience as authentic as possible.
