Steeple Peak, West Face, 1977. In June, 1977 my brother and I made what we believe was a new route on the west face of Steeple Peak. We climbed six pitches in a direct line up the face. All the cracks are clean and lead directly to the summit with the final moves being a mantel out of a steep layback crack onto the summit cairn. NCCS III, F8.
