News/Documentary - In the Steps of Conrad Kain

One of the defining moments of the Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb expedition, when the team came the closest to experiencing what it was actually like to climb a century ago with nothing but a pair of hobnail boots and a hemp rope tied around their waist. Garry Reiss leads a more technical pitch of the first ascent route that follows the south ridge of Bugaboo Spire. Modern ropes, helmets and protective gear had to be used above this point to ensure the safety of all climbers.
