Middle Chief, Main South Peak. Located south of Dutch Miller Gap between Summit Chief and Little Big Chief, the true summit of this peak is about 2 feet higher and 75 feet south of the normally accepted summit. It is virtually unattainable except by the connecting ridge. On August 13 Ron Miller, Frank Dallman and I made the exposed traverse using two slings and four nuts.
