Day1-Kain Hut (2230m/7315ft): The group met up at the Yamnuska office in Canmore and drove over to the town of Radium, BC. From here you take a 45km dirt logging road of varying condition to the Bugaboos trailhead parking lot. Local legend has it that wild porcupines have chewed through brake lines here in the past so we had to wrap up our rental car in chicken wire. The hike up to the Conrad Kain hut begins with a easy trail and then abrupty turns a corner and heads straight up 2300ft or 700m ascent to the hut in 4.5km. This hike can be gruelling with heavy loads and should be the first warning of the steep terrain in the area. The Conrad Kain hut is a large 3-storey barn-like building that is a hub of climbing activity and full of mountaineering history. The Kain hut sits at 2230m or 7315ft elevation.
