Hallett Peak. A new route was done this summer on the second buttress of Hallett Peak by Tex Bossier and me. The route began to the left of the Jackson-Johnson route and continued directly up the smooth northeast corner of the buttress. Difficult climbing was encountered on the overhanging pitches near the top and thunder storms made conditions hazardous. Several pitons were used for aid on the last two leads. The route was completed in six hours.
