“The Bugaboos” by Ivan Petrov

“The Bugaboos”

The unforgettable setting of the Applebee Dome, perched high above the Alpine Club of Canada's Conrad Kain Hut, served as the base camp for our ascent of Bugaboo Spire and is a popular starting point for many climbs in the area. It is a hidden but relatively accessible alpine paradise for anyone willing to attempt a moderately challenging three to five hour hike, depending on your level of fitness and the weight of your load.
