Peak 7732, Chilliwacks. The first ascent of this peak, which is the highest point on the ridge between Redoubt Creek and Pass Creek and which overlooks Little Beaver Creek, was made by John Stout, Alfred Tatyrek, Marilyn Loranger, Ruth Ittner, and me on August 10. The climb was not difficult, with only one roped pitch to a notch in a ridge, but it involved considerable route-finding. We started northwest of the peak and crossed snowfields and hanging glaciers on the northeast face to reach a 6800-foot notch on the east ridge. Gaining this ridge required roped travel for about 100-feet on very rotten rock. From the notch we descended slightly on the south side, then traversed upward joining the west ridge about 300 feet below the summit.
