Hike – Buller Passes

Buller Pass

What an awesome start to the long weekend. Hiking in our backyard near the Spray Valley here in Alberta. Granted this was Saturday, but now that it’s Tuesday I can actually get around to writing a bit about it.

Buller Passes, is located roughly about a 35km drive on gravel roads off highway 40 (Kananaskis country); roughly about 2 hours from Calgary.

This time (for the first time) we invited some good friends (whom you might recognize from our Delirium Dive trip a few months ago), to join us on this hike. Our initial plan was to hit North Buller Pass, and then circuit around an “Unnamed Summit”. Unfortunately we didn’t quite figure out where to go and having run short on time we ended up summiting Guinn’s Pass. This required us to summit Buller then descend into another valley then quickly ascend Guinn’s, then doubling back to where we came; for those paying attention that means we had to climb 3 times. Woo!

Regardless, totally worth it! Check some of the pictures to get a brief idea of what it looked like. In the future it would be ace to get out there and camp at one of the lakes in the valley.

Where next?
