Description 

This formation has been climbed before, but I could not find any info. We dubbed it The Birthday Tower (since we did a route on our birthday. Yes, it was both our birthdays!).

Getting There 

Hike from Glacier Gorge Trailhead to the Andrews Glacier trail. This is to the west of Wowie. It is 1 tower left (west) of the Piton Spire.
