Description 

Another route on the West Face of Snowpatch Spire. This route is similar to others in that as you go up the rock cleans up. This route has some wide cracks to climb, as well as lots of moss to clean. I found this route to be very "alpine".

I am aware that this route description is lacking, so if you feel a need to post a better one, contact the admins and have them reassign this to you.
I posted this well after being at the Bugaboos, so my memory of specific pitches is minimal. In addition, I did not want to plagiarize the guidebook I left it vague.

Location 

West Face of Snowpatch Spire.

Protection 

Standard Alpine Rack, plus cams to 4"
