P 7046, Bomber Buttress. Just south of Cutthroat Lake and due east of Cutthroat Peak is an innocuous peak with an attractive north buttress. On September 5, John Culberson, Sue Harrington and I led six mountaineering students up a ten-pitch route on the buttress. They were Don Fawcett, Ed Lizewski, Joe Reidy, Shaun Kelley, DeWayne Algott and Troy Hayes. We mainly followed the crest of the buttress to a big ledge and then traversed right and climbed a large shallow comer with a hand crack on the left side (III, 5.8.)
