Out of the gully and onto the ridge line heading t...


A very exciting scramble to a minuscule summit.

Access a ledge which runs along the bottom of the face via an area of red rock on the east side of the peak.

Follow the right-hand chute (there's also a large Central Chute) stay left of the tower and aim for the crest of the ridge then follow it to the summit, there is a Class 4 step along the ridge.

Descend the route.

I recommend Missing in the Minarets if you're interested in the search for Walter Starr.


The right-hand chute on the northeast face of Clyde Minaret - accessible from Minaret or Cecile Lake.


Solo - with a helmet. Ice-axe and crampons seasonal.
