Howse Peak's name comes from Howse Pass , which lies 5 km (3 mi) to the west. The pass was named by David Thompson , after the Hudson's Bay Company trader Joseph Howse , who crossed the pass in 1809. (Thompson had actually crossed the pass two years earlier.)Overall it was a very successful ascent, as usual. This one felt a bit special since the route was pretty much our experimental design and worked out just as expected. (At least we did not have any reference saying people using this col to approach Howse Peak). There were a couple interesting facts.
