Mt. Bradley, Spice Factory, and other ascents. Quebec climbers Louis-Philippe Ménard and Maxime Turgeon established a remarkable new route up the 4,300-vertical-foot north face of Mt. Bradley. Their route, Spice Factory (5.10R M7 WI5), is the first on the true north face of Bradley and was climbed in a 55-hour round-trip push from May 20 to 22. While in the Ruth, they also climbed the classic Ham and Eggs route on the Moose’s Tooth and made the second ascents of The Escalator on Mt. Johnson and On the Frozen Roads of Our Incertitudes on London Bridge. See Turgeon’s feature article earlier in this Journal.
