On the 100 year anniversary of the first climb on Bugaboo Spire, a team of climbers geared up in 1916 gear and equipment to re-enact the climb. The Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb Project was successfully accomplished in July 2016. A film and photography exhibition went on tour across Canada as a part of Canada’s 150th celebrations. Find out more about the project and the documentary film here.

In July 2018, our Mystery Mountain Project expedition followed the footsteps of intrepid mountaineers Don and Phyllis Munday who explored the Waddington range in 1926.The team spent 21 days navigating the Coast Mountains’ wilderness relying only on vintage and replica period gear. Our second documentary film titled Mystery Mountain Project will be released in 2019.

Below is a listing of the media coverage these two projects have received.
