Scottish climber Uisdean Hawthorn has been busy making first ascents and impressive repeats in Canada's Purcell and Rocky Mountains over the summer. Uisdean moved to Canada last November and has been making the most of his easy access to its world-class mountain ranges. In August, he climbed a new line with Alik Berg on North Howser Tower (5.11+, 500m) in the Bugaboos, which they named Voodoo Chile. This week, Uisdean established Running in the Shadows (VI AI5 M6, 2000m) on Mount Robson (3,954m) - the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
