Jen Olson and Tim McAllister have established a new route on the South Howser Tower. The great weather has led to excellent autumn conditions in the alpine.

Olson and McAllister climbed Ethereal D+ 320 m M6 WI4R on Oct. 10, 2014. The new route climbs a nearly direct line up the face. Olson wrote, “We had planned to attempt a new line further left on the face, but we hadn’t expected to see the arrow of ice that drew our eyes and our hearts into longing and excitement.”

The Bugaboos are one of North America’s premiere alpine destinations. They have seen a number of parties take advantage of the conditions this year. If you’re looking for some world-class granite mixed climbing, look no further.
