West Fuller Butte, East Face. In May Don Reid and I climbed this face via a long dihedral that curves up and right, then ends just over halfway up the face. Three pitches lead to a sling belay at a point where one can move left across an easy face and up to a ledge. Two pitches lead straight right to where it is possible to climb up into left-slanting cracks leading to the summit. Two points of aid were used on the first pitch. NCCS III, F9, Al.
