Crystal Crag, East Face, 1978. Chuck Calef and I climbed a route on the east face of Crystal Crag in April 1978. We began in a dihedral above a large pine tree just uphill from the Rowell-Clevenger route. The first pitches are steep. Then the angle eases and the ridge is followed past a remarkable crystalline area to the summit. (I, 5.8.)
