Description

This circa early 1980's route is on the east face cirque.

Location

Unknown to me. Contact Steve Petro in Sandy UT.


This route is right of center on the east face, and starts near a black dike. It is approached via the summit of Cloud Peak, and can be reached by descending the northernmost snow gully on the (climbers') right side of the face.

Protection

clean gear and some bolts

This route is called "A Shimmering Abstraction". It was done by Arno Ilgner and Steve Petro in 1986. It's about 1000 feet long and is 11b or so. The FA party supplemented clean gear with blades, but it's been repeated clean with an R rating. All the bolts (maybe 10) are self-drive 5/16...and should be considered suspect.
