South Howser Tower, northwest face, The Wandering Direct
Canada, British Columbia, Bugaboo Provincial Park
In July, Jean-Pierre Ouellet and Matt McCormick climbed a new route on the northwest face of South Howser Tower. The Wandering Direct (IV 5.11 R) starts briefly in the chimney that defines Compassion Club (Gibson-Schaffer, 2012); it then breaks right across darker rock and trends up and right, following cracks, face features, and a chockstone-filled chimney, before reaching the white headwall on the Beckey-Chouinard.
