Thanks to Michael Schoemaker for adding this peak.
The towers of Mount Goodsir are the highest peaks in Yoho National park and are visible throughout the region. From the summit on a clear day you are able to see several other 11,000'ers for the Canadian Rockies.
The northeast face has a sheer cliff that rises over 1800 meters from the valley floor. Access to the mountain is a long slog up zinc creek, either tower is doable in a very long day, please note there is no traverse between the towers they are 2 separate climbs. Most parties bivi close to the tree line. To summit the south tower, which is the higher of the two follow the southwest ridge.
