Canada’s Premier Alpine Venue
The Bugaboos are a small but spectacular group of granite spires in eastern B.C. They are world renown for their fantastic architecture, legendary powder skiing, easy access and amazing alpine rock climbing. I’ve always been inspired from them, both as a climber and a photographer. The classic routes drew me in, and helped mould me as a climber. The obscure aid routes and virgin walls became a place to get creative while developing new routes. They also helped push my mental and physical limits while climbing with a core group of hard charging locals that would annually make their summer pilgrimage to the Bugaboos.
Documenting the action on and around the routes has been a big part of my passion for photography. Although it’s been 17 years since my first epic tr ip up Bugaboo Spire, it’s mostly been the past decade that I’ve developed an intimate relationship with the area, which will undoubtedly continue for a long time. The following images are a small taste of the good times that await those seeking high adventure, in Canada’s premier alpine climbing venue.
