Peak C, New Route. On August 9, Benny Bach and I climbed an eight-pitch, 5.7+ route on the north face of Peak C in the Gore Range. The incessant rain of the summer of 1997, supposedly a side-effect of the El Niño weather phenomenon, left the face extremely wet. We know little of the history of this impressive face but suspect our route was mostly new.
