North America, United States, Wyoming-Wind River Range, Stroud Peak, Northwest Face

Stroud Peak, Northwest Face. In August, my wife Tommie and I climbed a 12-pitch route on the northwest face of Stroud Peak. We began at the prominent buttress which extends out from the center of the face and ascended cracks and flakes near the crest. Where the buttress joins the face, there are three parallel comers. We chose the crisp, leftmost comer, which is right-facing. Above the comer the last quarter of the face offers many moderate options to the summit (III, 5.9).
