A route Ray Palmer and I did in 1968-69.

Description 

I have read various accounts that Ruth Mendenhall climbed several routes on this face in 1938. Ray Palmer and I made several attempts before climbing the whole face in 1968. Our route was mostly run out face climbing, with marginal protection, and a small crux roof on the first of about 5 pitches. Ray called the route "Godzilla's Revenge".

Getting There 

When Ray and I climbed the north face we approached the climb from the north side-Camp Colby. Others may know the current best approach.
