North America, United States, Wyoming—Tetons, Fourteen-Hour Pinnacle, Southeast Couloir

Fourteen-Hour Pinnacle, Southeast Couloir. An apparently easier but more dangerous route to this summit was found on August 5 by Dennis Menhet and Alan Rubin; no direct aid was used. After scrambling up about one third of the gully to the left of the pinnacle, this party roped up at the first step before climbing up the center of the face above. Scrambling led to the next step. Four and one-half leads up the left corner and center above, occasionally very rotten and F6, brought them to the ridge crest. Mixed climbing and scrambling then led left to the summit. This route is not to be recommended since there was considerable rockfall on the right side of the gully.
