Mt. Morrison, South Ridge of South Peak, Previously Unreported. Kirk Schultz and I climbed the South Ridge (IV 5.9+, eight roped pitches in 2,000' of climbing) of South Peak of Mt. Morrison in November, 1995. Not much needs to be said about the rock quality on this route; however, it is a thrilling and exposed climb. Climb a dike at the base of the east face to gain a large ledge 100 feet off the ground. From the ledge, scramble about 800 feet up gully on the left side of the east face to gain the south ridge. Climb a wall of sandstone, then a wall of limestone behind it (both 5.8) to a ridge of shit rock. This puts one in a large notch between the south ridge and the main ridge. Ascend a low-angle dihedral to the top of the east face. Climb into a notch and ascend a very loose rock to an arête that leads to a steep thin crack (crux). Scramble down to a gully that forms the left side of the south ridge, then 300 feet up to the top of the south peak, which is apparently the true summit of Mt. Morrison.
