Granite Towers, Rising From the Ice.

The Bugaboos are home to North America’s most amazing alpine rock: Bugaboo, Snowpatch, Pigeon and the Howser Towers; this place has to be seen and experienced to really believe it!

From the Beckey-Chouinard (V 5.10) to the West Ridge of Pigeon (II 5.4), there is something here for everyone! A three-hour hike brings you to the commodious Conrad Kain Hut, which provides the base for a week-long binge of Alpine rock climbing or mountaineering.
