The Dragtooth, West Chimney and West Ridge. Mary Bomba and I made this first ascent on July 26. We climbed from the Dragtooth Glacier to Polemonium Pass. From 100 feet northeast of the pass, we ascended cracks and chimneys up and left to a large broken area and on to a large chimney, which we followed to its top on the west ridge. We continued up the south side of the ridge to the summit. III, F8.
