    One of Canada’s Best Rock Climbers, Will Stanhope, to Present at the
    Kootenay Rock Climbing Festival on September 23rd

    The Kootenay Rock Climbing Festival is pleased to announce Canadian rock climbing hardman Will Stanhope will be guest speaking at the event being held Saturday, September 23th in Castlegar, British Columbia.

    Stanhope has innumerable rock climbing ascents to his credit and last month completed one of the hardest climbing achievements ever done on Canadian soil: he and British climber Leo Houlding climbed all three west faces of the Howser Towers in the Bugaboos, East Kootenays, in 23.5 hours.

    Stanhope will be speaking about that accomplishment as well as his experience doing the hardest free climb in the Bugaboos last year. Afterwards he will open up the floor for questions from attendees of the festival.

    Please log on to our TAWKROC chapter's website for more information about the weekend-long event on September 23 and 24.
