Snowpatch Spire, Bugaboos, August 1997

[Graphics:HTMLFiles/Snowpatch_1.gif]

The classic view of the east face of Snowpatch Spire. The route takes a circuitous path to the base of the snowpatch, then up easy ground left of the snow, and then 3-4 hard pitches (all with some 5.6-5.7) on the headwall. Descent is a rappell of the back side.
