North America, United States, California—Sierra Nevada, Mount Russell, Northeast Face

Mount Russell, Northeast Face. On June 10, Reed Cundiff and I made the first climb of this very alpine, slabby face. Terrible snow conditions prevented us from gaining the central slabs, so we were forced to settle for a less classic, but still valid route on solid, broken rock to the right side of the face. The climb ends on the eastern summit. NCCS II or III.
