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.
