Spent a few days out at the Fisher Spires in the Kootenay rockies. Amazing place with great rock, but not so easy to find. We climbed some excellent 60 meter sport pitches on the Great White Wall, only a thirty minute bushwhack from camp. Hiked up to the Finger of Fate just below the summit of Mt Fisher, but the approach took so long (and we left so late) that we ran out of time. The book sandbagged us on an estimated approach time of 1.5 hours – it took at least twice that much time to bushwhack about 4km including 850 meters of loose, steep talus. 90 minute approach if you are an ultrarunner or a mountain goat. Psyched to go back with more time and climb those sick towers!
