I had the opportunity to present at the Night of Lies last week. The presentations at this event need to be 10 minutes or shorter. I wanted to show a video about soloing in a slightly different format then my previous films. Enjoy the footage from Chamonix, France and the Bugaboos, the North Howser Tower, west face. Peace
Mount Cromwell 3330 m (text by: Raphael Slawinski) The north face of Mt. Cromwell is readily seen from the Icefields Parkway when traveling south. The most notable features of the face are a serac immediately below the summit and, down and right of it, a large snowfield in the middle of the face. The Elzinga/Miller route works its way through the lower rock bands to attain this snowfield, and exits by the right edge of the prominent serac. To the left of these features is a large buttress, taken by the Robinson/Arbic route. When in condition, both routes offer excellent ice and mixed climbing, and are well worth of a closer look.
