Description 

When Mr. McCoubrey first saw the Leaning Tower, he used up a roll of film to capture the moment while cautiously balancing on a quartzite slab atop an unknown peak in the Purcells (1924). After a failed attempt the previous summer, the 1933 McCoubrey Expedition climbed the highest peak in the group.

Some time after the climb, Canada changed the name Leaning Tower to Hall Peak; probably during the same era that the Interior Ranges started being called the Columbia Mountains.

From a rough camp in the west face cirque, they climbed rock and snow to the Block-Hall Col. Then the route climbs rock slabs and snow up a rib located across the north side glacier from the North Ridge (west of N Ridge).
