Mt Bute: West Face Free and Coastal Range Adventures with Blake


Many thanks to Blake Herrington for suggesting an adventure on Mt. Bute in the Coastal Range of Canada this past August. We were pretty much on a blind date and fared phenomenally well. While I admit there were times I would have rather avoided eye contact (namely during the bushwacking out), I ever appreciate Blake’s desire to understand and ability to communicate directly and from the heart in any setting, whether climbing or tent-bound for the week. Cheers to more adventures together! Click here for photos and to read Blake’s trip report. (Also thanks B for letting me get away with on;y editing).

There’s a profile on Blake and his inspiration for this route on the Mountain Gear blog.

And then read some tasteful mag spray on our climb from Climbing Magazine (8/30/13):
