North America, United States, Wyoming—Wind Rivers, The "Plume"

The “Plume”. After a late start from Lonesome Lake, Court Richards and I climbed the first three leads up the north face of the “Plume”, traversing right on the left wall of the north couloir. We made two leads up easy ledges to the col between the “Plume” and Warbonnet and climbed south and east up a small ledge to the summit. We rappelled 150 feet from the summit to ledges in the north couloir, walked down the ledges and made a second rappel down the steep, snow-filled couloir to the rock west of the couloir. We used 10 pitons, 8 for anchors in the 5½-hour climb. (NCCS II, 5.)
