  1. A buddy and I are considering a late-September trip to the Bugaboos. Neither of us has been before. We had hoped to do the Kain Route but understand the Bugaboo-Snowpatch Col is out for the season. We're now wondering what a late-season crossing of the Bugaboo Glacier to reach the West Ridge of Pigeon Spire might look like. We assume bare ice and plenty of crevasses, but wonder if there's much of a chance of finding a route through them...assuming we get lucky and find a good weather window. I've been unable to find any September trip reports, which seems to speak volumes. Have any of you been up there this late in the season in a bad snow year? The Kain Hut is still open but wondering if we'd have much to do if we couldn't cross the glacier. Any tips/recommendations? Is it silly to even consider?
