Mount Humphreys, North Face. Darla Heil and I had planned to do the Rowell-Faint route, but it seems that we were well to the right of that. From a point two-thirds of the way up the couloir running under the face, I led past a six-foot red roof (5.8) and continued for three more pitches of 5.8. Two more pitches of easier climbing led to the northwest arête and the summit.
