Yale Mountaineering Club

Yale Mountaineering Club. The summer of 1967 was a very active one for the YMC with members climbing in areas from the Arctic to Europe. Close to home, Cannon Mountain received a great deal of attention. A second ascent there of the YMC Dike (IV, F9, A3) was made in 11 hours of climbing. Larry Winship and George Eypper made the second ascent of the YMC in a single day’s climbing. Sam Streibert: and Steve Arsenault made the third ascent of this route, as well as the: first continuous ascent of the Pendulum route on Cathedral Ledge (IV, F7, A3). In California Bob Wyman visited the Minarets in the Sierra Nevada, while Eypper, Winship, and George Crawford climbed in Yosemite. The routes they climbed there included the east buttress of Middle Cathedral Spire, Arrowhead Arête, the Steck route on Higher Cathedral Spire, Arches Terrace, the Braille Book, and the north face of Quarter Dome. Further afield, Don Schmechel and I were members of an expedition that made the first ascent of the Catenary Ridge of Mount Logan. Phil Ritterbush visited the Cape Dyer region of Baffin Island, while Scott Stevens climbed in Switzerland and Austria.
