Mount Monarch, South Buttress. A week’s trip to Mount Monarch in August by Dennis Mullen and me resulted in a third route on this imposing mountain, the south buttress. We had some route-finding problems, some good rock, some bad. The deep gap at 10,000 feet caused problems. The final ascent from the gap was made by Mullen, solo.
