North America, United States, California–Sierra Nevada, Mount Russell, New Route

Mount Russell, New Route. On the south side of Mount Russell, to the right of the ridge which defines the Sierra crest, are two prominent arêtes. The left arête is a previously unreported eight-pitch 5.8 climb, first ascent unknown. In July, Claude Fiddler, Vern Clevenger and I climbed the right arête. A rappel into a notch high on the route was the only aid we used. (III, 5.10, A1.)
