“First Glimpse of the Bugaboos” by Ivan Petrov

“First Glimpse of the Bugaboos”

The Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb Project team gets its first glimpse of the Hound's Tooth - one of many strikingly beautiful granite spires that make up the mountain group know as the Bugaboos. It is from the base of this valley that on August 29, 1916 Conrad Kain, accompanied by Albert and Elizabeth MacCarthy and John Vincent, started their legendary first ascent of Bugaboo Spire. (Part of the ongoing 16-piece exhibition at the White Museum of the Canadian Rockies.)
