Mount Rainier, Willis Wall, Winter Ascent. After years of trying, the north face of Mount Rainier has finally been climbed in the winter. In mid-February, 1970 Jim Wickwire and I made the third ascent of the 4000-foot Willis Wall via the newest and hardest route on the mountain. We are calling it the “Brumal Buttress”. The climb took five days.
