About Snowpatch Spire:

Snowpatch Spire is impossible to miss. You'll first set your eyes on this spire from the parking lot and will identify it by its huge patch of snow found half way up the side of the East Face. Conrad Kain once described this spire as being unclimbable. Little did he realize that future generations would establish routes on this spire that are considered the most enjoyable and aesthetic lines in the Bugaboos.
