Mount Proboscis, Grendel. From mid-July to August, Chris Righter, Greg Epperson, Chris Kalous and I established Grendel (VI 5.10 A4) on the southeast face of Mount Proboscis, which followed a thin seam between Yukon Tears and the Original Route. The route was climbed over eight days capsule-style. Fifteen pitches were climbed, eight rivets were placed and 60-meter ropes used. The team attempted a second new route but got shut down by 16 consecutive days of snow and rain. This was the fifth route on the southeast face and the last obvious line.
