Mike reaches the West Ridge on Pigeon Spire
The Bugaboos has always been a magical place for me. I was hooked while looking at the picture in the 2nd edition of "Mountaineering, Freedom of the Hills" (1969, page 41). I've been there twice, once in 1984 and once in 1995, this picture is from the second time, both with Mike. The West Ridge is a great climb with little difficulty (5.4) and spectacular views and setting. This picture is taken as we reach the ridge up form the Pigeon-Howser col. In the background is the South side of the South Howser Spire and down into the Horse Thief Creek valley.
