Little Tahoma, North Face. George Dunn and I made the second ascent of the 2000-foot north face of Little Tahoma, twenty years after the original Prater-Mahre climb. Our January 8 climb was accomplished under extremely cold conditions which left the face heavily iced. No rockfall was observed. It is unclear how the original route has been altered by the massive 1963 rockslide from this face. Our route was to the right of the original line. We found excellent ice on the high central icefield, reached after a short rock pitch climbed on crampons.
