Description

I have read various accounts that Ruth Mendenhall climbed several routes on this face in 1938. Ray Palmer and I made several attempts before climbing the whole face in 1968. Our route was mostly run out face climbing, with marginal protection, and a small crux roof on the first of about 5 pitches. Ray called the route "Godzilla's Revenge".

Getting There

When Ray and I climbed the north face we approached the climb from the north side-Camp Colby. Others may know the current best approach.

Cool to see you guys put info up on this.

I climbed the first pitch of Godzilla a few years ago. I climbed the route to the right (Buttress of the Winter Wind) a few pitches up on two occasions, once solo. Second time (solo) I saw the first pitch anchors were beat to hell from rockfall, which appears to have come from a roof above, which spilled loosed rock chips all over the routes below.
