Gunsight (main summit), Southwest Arête. On August 2 Gary Brill, Carl Skoog and I made this climb. Crossing the Chickamin Glacier, we tackled the obvious face which lies below the buttress and makes up the lower third of the route. By ascending the face, first right and then left, we were able to gain the arête proper. Once there, the arête was simply followed on its crest to the summit. (NCCS II, F5.)
