East Horn, South Face, Tetons. In an unusual, late season climb, Hal Gribble and Paul Horton made a new route on the south face of the East Horn of Mount Moran on November 16. About four pitches of ice climbing up the right (north) side of Falling Ice Glacier took the party to the flat basin just below the face. Their route followed the right (eastern) edge of the face defined (on the east) by a prominent chimney leading directly to the deep notch just east of the summit. At about mid-height this edge or corner becomes a well-defined ridge which curves up and left to the summit. Six long pitches over easy, and not especially loose or dangerous rock, led to the summit; there was no rockfall. NCCS II, F4.
