Vasiliki Tower, South Face. Al Murdoch and Ed Cooper made this ascent in early June, following a direct line to the summit from the notch next to Burgundy Spire. Several hundred feet of enjoyable class 4 climbing were encountered. The last lead proved to be a high-angle slab capped with an overhang. Chinning over this on a good hold brought the party within 10 feet of the summit.
