Mount Lester and Woodrow Wilson. On August 5 Court Richards, Larry Evans and I made a new route on the north face of the west portion of double-summited Mount Lester, using twelve pitons in the good rock on this face. The upper portion was more difficult than the lower and was grade 5. On August 8 Dave Wood and Dick Ream made a new route on the north face of the east portion, also grade 5. On both climbs, crampons were needed to reach the base of the face. On August 11 Dick Ream, Richards, Evans and I made a new variant on the central rib of the south face of Woodrow Wilson, climbing the right wall of the rib. (Central rib was first climbed by Kraus, Wolcott and Snyder on August 20, 1946.— Editor.)
