Prusik Peak, Lady Godiva Route. On May 28 and 29, Stephen Mitchell, Charles Sink, and I climbed Prusik Peak’s west face. The climb was done entirely clean with over forty chocks and involved about 40% aid. Begin climbing in cracks on the right-hand side of the face for two-and- a-half leads. Dihedrals on the right side of the face lead to a good ledge two pitches from the top. Traverse right and ascend a dihedral, then a crack and chimney system to the summit. Rack of forty chocks from #1 stoppers to #8 hex. NCCS IV, F9, A-3.
