What a cool name, right?! And the mountains didn't disappoint either. The Bugaboos are hidden away in eastern BC, within the Purcell Range. My friend Dave Moskowitz and I planned this trip last winter. This was the first time in a long time that I had pre-planned a mountain trip so far in advance. Seeing it on the calendar for all those months allowed for the anticipation and excitement to grow more so than usual to go and explore a new area. This trip reignited my alpine motivation, and gave me a whole new list of routes I want to climb.
