Barbican. In mid-August Don Jensen, Frank Sarnquist and I climbed Barbican by the west ridge, a new route. From Tonquin Valley the ridge was gained via the right hand of two prominent snow gullies which lead up from the right side of the west face. The climb then followed the ridge crest, occasionally detouring onto the east face. Except for one pitch 200 feet below the summit, all of the climbing was done 3rd or 4th class.
