While less spectacular than their west faces, the east faces of the Howser Towers offer some interesting mixed and moderate alpine rock, as well as descent lines for most of the monster routes on the other side. Climate change is taking its toll, though, as the bergshrunds are becoming increasingly impassable, especially as seen here in early fall!
