Mount Candlelight, Northeast Buttress. On July 5 D. French, Mr. and Mrs. D. Stevenson and I made a new route, climbing Mount Candlelight (Peak 12,004) by the northeast buttress. From Whitney Portal at 8350 feet we had a 6-hour Grade IV and V climb to the subsidiary summit (10,170 feet) and another three hours of Grade II and III to the summit.
