Incredible Hulk. Greg Donaldson closed his description of the west face of the Incredible Hulk with the sentence, “So the summit is still waiting along with a thousand other possibilities.” (A.A.J., 1971, 17:2, p 353.) Note that this is no longer the case. On May 23 Bob Grow and I reached the summit. The route ascended the couloir on the right of the Hulk for several hundred feet. A steep chute in the left wall of the main couloir then led to a high notch. From there it was three pitches of easy roped climbing to the summit.
