A Cumbrian climber has completed a one-day ascent of three huge rock faces in Canada.
37-year-old Leo Houlding, who lives in the Lake District, teamed up with Canadian, Will Stanhope, to face the Howser Towers.
The two climbers linked the west faces of the three towers in the Bugaboos, in British Columbia, in 23.5 hours.
The link-up consisted of over 2,000m of vertical and over-vertical climbing.
This is the first time all of the summits have been reached via their west faces by the same team in one day.
Houlding and Stanhope began their climb shortly after dawn at 7.00am on 29 August on Central Tower.
They reached the third and final summit with just 30 minutes to spare 6.30am on 30 August.
Now back home in Cumbria, Leo says:
Leo is now preparing for his next expedition.
Sponsored by Berghaus, he plans to lead a three-man international team on an 70-day, 2000km trans-continental journey.
It involves climbing the 750m south buttress of a peak called the Spectre in the Gothic Mountains, Antarctica.
The team are set to leave the UK in early November.
