On Aug 13, 1977, I led Claire Carren up the center of the Southeast Face. The climbing was continuously difficult on the route we established. The crux was a steep lieback to a small overhang, which I stemmed. After four pitches, we reached the ridge and followed it west, to the summit.


Avoiding easier, broken rock, we followed the best-looking rock up the center of the Southeast Face.
