North America, United States, California-Sierra Nevada, Mount Stewart, Dawn Pillar

Mount Stewart, Dawn Pillar. On June 17, David Wilson and I ascended a new route on Mount Stewart’s north face. We began climbing on the steepest section of this face, following jam-cracks up the left side of a small pillar directly underneath the west summit. Nine pitches later we stood on the west summit exhilarated over the fine quality of rock that we encountered. This route is about 100 meters west of that climbed by Hooman Aprin, Jack Roberts and me in 1973. (III, 5.10.)
