Trip Report

I forget when I first heard of BowCrow Peak but it's been on my never ending and never shrinking list of Rockies summits for years. Something that was frustrating me was that even though I had a general idea where it was located, I couldn't for the life of me figure out how anyone bagged it! It's impossible from the Bow Peak side and improbable from the Crowfoot side - although apparently the Crowfoot Glacier has been used to access it.
