North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Mountains, Piton Tower, West and North Faces

Piton Tower, West and North Faces. Stan Shepard and I made the first ascent of the west face on July 16, using pitons for aid and one bolt for safety. Near the bottom the route diagonaled left, then right, and proceeded generally up the center of the face, including the surmounting of one short overhang.

The north face was first climbed on December 9 by me, belayed from below by Richard Fleming, and involved continuous aid with three bolts.

The first free ascent of the normal route was done on June 29 by Eric Bjornstad and me, with pitons for safety.
