West Annapurna, Stuart Range. Using an approach from Ingalls Creek, Dave Beckstead and I made the first ascent of the south face in June. We began on broken granite at the lowest portion of the face, then followed a slight rib on the face. Most of the climb was class 4 and easy class 5, but one slot had 5.7 moves. The rock is very solid.
