Thanks to Gregg MacDonald for adding this peak.

Snowpatch Spire is in the Purcell Range of the Canadian Rockies, and within a sub-range called the Bugaboos. It holds 37+ routes ranging from 5.6 to the ridiculous. You will need ice axe and crampons to safely approach any of the rock routes. Be aware that in the best of conditions, weather here is volitile. You can have sunshine, thunderstorms and heavy snow all in the same day. Be prepared.

Thanks to Gregg MacDonald for this description.
