From December 56, 2002, Scott Semple, Will Gadd and Kevin Mahony opened a new mixed route on Howse Peak. Fragile ice, a hold that looked like a card deck and some X pitches made for an experience that nearly resembled a Howse of Cards (VI M7-W16 X, 1065m). A full account of their expedition appears in Issue 3.
