Cutthroat Peak. In August, Hugh Sincock and I climbed a new route on the southwest side of Cutthroat Peak. This is a clean, winding gully that joins the west ridge just below the summit. It is the second gully right (south) of the ridge. The climbing is easy class 5 on slabs that are generally solid, sometimes flaky, and always shy on cracks. Two much more difficult-looking steps were bypassed on the left. From the ridge crest we joined the original route by climbing to the ledge behind the prominent gendarme via a short wall to its right.
