Ursusgrowl, WI3, 30M, Sam Lightner and friends. Nov 10 2003
Sunday we climbed a stepped bit of WI3 that is not in any of the books. Easy access in a remote setting, no crowds, but the route is only 30 meters high and therefore perhaps not even worth mentioning... If it is and is new we would call it "Ursus Growl". Approach it by walking around the north side of Bow Lake and then look for north facing ice flow at the mouth of the canyon on Crowfoot Peak. Work your way up and through the trees. Takes about an hour from the car. You might want to make a lot of noise on the approach as we saw very large bear tracks in the snow and heard some strange noises in the trees... hence the name.
