I Just Caught His Wave

In the winter of 1997 a route called Winter Dance was established by the late Alex Lowe in Hyalite Canyon, Montana. At that time I had just moved from Ohio. I was attending college and at the same time getting used to my first pair of ice tools. The way I saw it Alex set the bar and it was up to the new climbers in the Hyalite area to try and reach that standard. Well after 10 year of apprenticeship in the beautiful Hyalite Canyon the bar was reached and maybe even raised just a hair. Click on the URL below to check out the movie that tells the story. Alex was a true visionary, I just caught his wave.
