Mount Ball, Northeast Buttress. Jerry Fuller and I hiked to Shadow Lake to inspect the great north face of Mount Ball but found much loose rock and rockfall off its cliff bands. Instead we chose a not too difficult buttress fringing the left side of the face and made a long route to the summit. It appears to be a new route, with short cliff problems, varied types of rock and some steep snow.
