Can't Post

Im a 32 year old guy from Sweden, travelling the world in search of some climbable rock. Would love to sample some of the moderate classics on different spires at the Bugaboos. Got a single or double rack, a rope, no car, 5 years of MP trad and alpine experience, and safety is my #1 priority. Ill fly into Calgary some time around the 5th of Aug, and will possibly spend a day or two in Canmore before heading up to the Bugaboos. Im quite flexible with the dates, and can climb anything from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. I plan on camping most of the time. May take a short brake from the place in the middle of August, and head down to Canmore. Some routes Id like to do include:

West Ridge 5.4 *** 500m (Pigeon Spire)
Snowpatch Route 5.8 *** 19p (Snowpatch Spire)
Northeast Ridge 5.8 ***10p (Bugaboo Spire)
Wildflowers 5.9** 8p (Snowpatch Spire)
Paddle Flake Direct 5.10 ** 5p (Crescent Spire)
McTech Arete 5.10- *** 6p (Crescent Spire)
Becky- Choinard 5.10 *** 15 p (South Howser)

Im up for harder routes too, but youll have to do the crux pitches :). On bad weather days Ill be doing some studies, so my pace can be quite flexible. If youd like to climb a lot we can do that, but Im happy to take plenty of rest days if that suits you better. However, because of the studies I will not be too keen to head out if the forecast is dodgy.
