Mt. Awesome, North Face. Mt. Awesome (8,645'), an attractive peak on the west side of the Spectrum Glacier, saw an ascent in April. During the spring crust weeks, Matt Porter skied in to snag a solo ascent of the impressive north face. The route is reported to have snow climbing to 50° with some nice ice sections up to 70° for short sections.
