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.

Makes for a quick descent from the technical routes. As a scramble, the East Ridge is far superior in every single way. Dec 10, 2018
