Buller Pass (or Passes) Loop is a loop consisting of the less-used North Buller Pass and the more popular (South) Buller Pass in Spray Valley Provincial Park, Kananaskis Country. According to GPS, the loop was about 16km in length and we gained 825 meters in altitude, getting up to 2,470m (8,103ft) in elevation.

This was another hike I had to redo after another “misadventure” a year ago.
