North America, United States, Alaska, Ruth Gorge, The Incisor, New Route

The Incisor, New Route. It was reported that Eli Helmuth climbed a new route on the Incisor with three clients in the spring. The 700-meter climb, which started with a hidden 45-degree névé couloir to reach the crux, followed the northwest face. The crux was 70-degree mixed climbing that led to a 40-degree snow/ice slope and the final sharp arête to the summit. (High Mountain Sports 173)
