Blockhouse, West Face. This short but impressive face was first climbed on July 8 by Al Read and Sterling Neale. After traversing right on easy rock nearly to the edge of the south face, they climbed up and slightly left for 80 feet to a ledge from which a 15-foot traverse left, on very small holds, led to a belay ledge. The second lead went directly up the corner formed by the west and south faces. A scramble then led to the summit.
