Goldenhorn, Northeast Arête. August 8 Jim Walseth and I climbed this buttress. From Snowy Lakes the arête was gained by descending one of the many couloirs which exist on the Goldenhorn-Tower barrier. Following the obvious line of the ridge, either on or just right of its crest, made for an exhilarating climb. The crux was on the first pitch, consisting of a mantel on a detached block. Some loose rock. (NCCS III, F8.)
