North America, United States, Idaho, Mount Heyburn, North Buttress of the East (Third) Summit, Sawtooth Mountains

Mount Heyburn, North Buttress of the East (Third) Summit, Sawtooth Mountains. On October 15 my wife Shari and I climbed an obvious buttress on the north face of Hayburn’s east summit. Difficult climbing involved crack climbing. On the fifth pitch I let loose a large rotten flake, which fortunately missed Shari. Some of the rock was extremely weathered and rotten while other parts were quite sound. There was a short overhanging finer crack on the summit spire. NCCS III, F9, Al.
