Turret Peak and Mt. Warren. Some variations may have been added to the established routes which start from the saddle connecting these peaks. An ascent of Turret from the saddle (Elsie Col) was made during a severe snow squall by John Speck, Paul Stettner and Edmund Lowe in late August. The descent was by approximately the same route. Earlier in August, George MacGowan, Jack Hossack and Phil Dickert encountered steep icy overhangs on Mt. Warren and finally made the ascent by climbing over black ice on the N.E. face.
