Trail to the Kain Hut # 555

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1999.09.23
Vantage Point: From Trail

Caption: The photo shows the trail to the Conrad Kain Hut in Bugaboo Provincial Park. Snowpatch Spire is in the background. Kevin Riddell (facing), Chris and Martin are on their way to the mountains.

PhotoDescr: This trail has a bad reputation for steepness. If you train on the West Coast, you will actually find it moderate. It is only 5km long and the elevation gain is merely 700m. There is no bushwhacking and it is very well maintained. Ropes, chains and ladders are installed along the trail during the summer season to help in treacherous places.
