Just found the original topo for this route. Would love to hear about any repeat ascents.

This climb is listed in Kerry's Guide and his topo was made from this one. "Start 150' right of the North Face."

Disclaimer:I have not climbed this route nor will I ever be able to. I have submitted this route because the topo in Kerry's guide is cropped to eliminate the beginning of the route and other details that are on the original topo.

I do not want this historical original topo to be forgotten so if you are really keen on getting on this route please PM me directly and I will get you a copy. I have scanned it but it is too faint to read well.

How are you going to get us a copy if you have it scanned but can't read it well?

If you are working on a guidebook I'm sure you have basic photo editing skills for this kind of thing. In my experience you can make a faint scan/photo much more readable by simply tweaking the contrast.

My suggestion is that you upload what you've got to this page so it can actually be useful to the community.

Also, offer to hand-off this description to someone who is more familiar with the route.

Otherwise, this entire submission sure seems more like a solicitation to get someone to visit your website or contact you rather than a contribution to the community.

The new 'Improve This Page' feature allows submissions to be updated. If this proves problematic I can assist.

I will contact the contributor and request that the topo be added.
