Description 

The Eastpost Spire sits just east of the Applebee campground and is only about a stones throw away. It's approximately 400' tall at it's highest point with good rock quality but the rock is generally dirty. There are only a few routes on it that are documented in the guide book but many more have been climbed and gone unrecorded.

Getting There 

From the Kain Hut walk up to the Applebee campground, head east through the camp and there it is.

The route makes a good introduction to Bugaboo climbs or something to do when the weather is not great, because it is short and requires no glacier travel for the approach.From the hut, hike down the trail (as if going to the parking lot) to the point where the trail crosses the main creek. Before dropping down into the switchbacks, cross the meadows and head for the ridge. There are many ways to get to the r...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
