Powell Peak, East Face. On July 4 John Byrd, Dakers Gowans and I climbed a new route, probably the first, on the east face of Powell Peak. We followed a direct line just left of the center of the smooth main wall and right of a huge, left-leaning finger of rock. We finished after six pitches a few yards from the summit cairn. NCCS II, F6; nuts up to two inches.
