New quest for Will Stanhope in the Bugaboos
With Leo Houlding01 September 2017
Will Stanhope, one of America's finest crack climber, succeeded in its great goal: the free climb in a day of the three Howser Towers in Bugaboos, British Columbia, Canada.
Together with the partner Leo Houlding, Will succeeded in this goal that he had been in the lead since 2009, the year when he ascended the Central Tower with Jason Kruk and Matt Segal.
So, William climbed in a day (and free climbed) the 2000-meter of the 3 routes on the three towers, from the west side. He started with Chocolate Fudge Brownie on the Central Tower at the early morning lights, then attacked Spicy Red Beans / All Along the Watchtower on the North, and closed in beauty with Beckey-Chouinard on the South Tower. Will climbed 58 lenghts up to 5.12+(7a +).
