Austerity, East Face. An Appalachian Mountain Club party of Ed Nester, Ken Andrasko, Reed Markley and I in late July made a new route on the east face of Mount Austerity (10,980 feet). The east face was largely high-angle snow; the last five pitches of the route were rock climbing on the unclimbed north ridge. We were somewhat hampered by weather conditions.
