The crux is at the top of the South Slope, near the East Ridge.
I have climbed this as part of Whitney, Muir, and Russell, in a day.


Located to the right of Fish hook arete. There are some photos attached to other Mt Russell routes showing South Slope from a distance. This is the climber descent route.
