Mount Slesse, North Face. In July Rob Kiesel and I climbed the rib on the right side of the narrow north face of Mount Slesse and from its top ascended by the northwest corner to the summit. We stayed near the crests of both the rib and the upper corner, where the rock was excellent. NCCS V, F8, 27 pitches, 50 nuts, 5 pitons, no aid, 13 hours of climbing broken by a bivouac at the top of the rib.
