Description [Suggest Change]
This is the southwest arete of the West Mendenhall Tower. See the map image for a rough idea of the route. The route climbs the prominent gray pillar up the middle of the face. The only aid used was for one short stretch of expanding flake. The FA team used no air support, instead they approached via skis. They descended the route climbed.

Your usual rack for nearly 1,000 of good alpine/Alaskan granite. Glacier travel gear needed too.
