Peak 12,960, South Face. In May, 1976 Jay Foster, Shari Nelson, and I spent two and a half days ascending a new route up the south face of this peak that is directly west of Lone Pine peak. Our route followed a large chimney system right of center, and finished through crack systems slightly left of the chimney’s end. One bolt was placed for a bivouac anchor, otherwise the route was done clean. NCCS V, F9, A2.
