Mount Stewart, North Face. A long approach on the High Sierra Trail and up Lone Pine Creek ended at the base of the previously unclimbed north face of Mount Stewart. On the following day, August 19, Mike Graber, Jack Roberts and I started out on the giant, usually snow-covered platform at the base of the two parallel buttresses directly below the summit. Some 1500 feet of alpine climbing on good high-altitude granite ended a few feet east of the summit. The route lies mostly left of the east buttress. NCCS III, F6.
