Mount Owen, Southeast Face. It is surprising that there have been only two climbs on the face between the south ridge and the regular Koven couloir of Mount Owen, especially since this is the most accessible portion of the mountain. On August 18 Ants Leemets and John Hudson made an apparently new route on this face which lies west of the Chouinard route of 1957. Their climb started from the Teton Glacier on broken rock in watercourses just to the right of a large buttress. Seven or eight pitches lead to the shelf that is used for the Fryxell traverse from the regular couloir to the south ridge. Four more leads, which included some direct aid, brought the party to the upper Koven snowfield where the regular route was joined.
