Mount Winstone, North Face, British Columbia Coast Range, 1986. In August 1986 Gary Silver and I approached via Taseko Lakes. The climb began at the same place as the Pilling-Gerson climb of 1983 but bears directly up steep snow and ice toward the west summit ridge to the left of the previous route. The snow-covered ice proved too dangerous to complete to the ridge and so the final six pitches were done on class-5 rock.
