Comments: Heading to the Bugs this year a bit earlier than I'd like. I'll arrive the 1st of July. Any idea whether the Beckey-Chouinard is doable this time of year (of course, I know that each year--or even week--is different, I'm just looking for an idea of whether this is sometimes doable in early July/late June).

Comments: I was in the Bugaboos last July. I used running shoes for all approaches and climbing shoes for the rock. I think this worked quite well. Passing the col and the glaciers makes your feet a little wet though.

Comments: I would definitely recommend going right to dehumanized. Otherwise it just has one hard problem, followed by easy 5.10 climbing. If you link it with dehumanized it is much more consistent.

Comments: Not the best route. Did not seem like a 5.10, more like 5.9

Comments: Awesome route. We did the second pitch as well which is super fun. I'm not sure why they don't mention that this is a rare two-pitch fully bolted amazing route. Super exposed and kinda scary.

Comments: One of my favorites. The route goes a bit right of the first two bolts.
