Guye Peak, West Face. The “Improbable Traverse” route was made on October 20 by Mike Borghoff and Dave Hiser, involving an ascent of a large corner on the left side of the face, then a traverse to the right on a blank-looking wall, followed by a left diagonal on the “ramp” to the upper portion of the face. This route is probably safer than the usual west face route.
