Dumbbell Mountain, Northeast Face, 1988. On September 5, 1988, I climbed this new route. I started at the high point of the snowfield between the main and northeast peaks of Dumbbell where an obvious steep, narrow gully divides the smooth faces. I followed the gully up and generally right (class 3 and 4). At the high point of the face on the right, a ledge led rightward to easy slopes north-northeast of the summit.
