Midway Mountain, East Ridge, South Face. This route starts 30 feet right of a prominent right-facing dihedral. The first pitch is the crux, with 5.7 stemming and jam cracks to a belay slab. The next two pitches wander up and slightly left to the east ridge at 13,000 feet. From there it is easy to the summit. It was climbed in July by Mark Hoffman, Mark Tuttle and me. (II, 5.7.)
