Original account of the first ascent in the 1965 AAJ. A few other noteworthy routes from the same year: Index Town Wall (WA), West Buttress & Dihedral Wall on El Cap, the Folly & Goodrich Pinnacle in the Valley, the Cirque of Towers Traverse (Wind Rivers), Direct South Buttress of Halletts Peak & Chief's Head NE Face (RMNP) to name a few. Quite a year!  The first ascent party with friends on the summit - dressed in era-appropriate duds (L to R: Larry Coats, Joe Sharber, Gloria Hardwick, and Ross Hardwick).  Larry Coats leading the final ramp pitch (65 degree ice).  Larry Coats on alpine ice above the chimney pitch.  Ross Hardwick leading the chimney pitch on the first ascent.
