Climbs in Bill’s Pass Area. There are a number of prominent pinnacles on the ridges southwest of Bill’s Pass, which were apparently unclimbed. On August 2 Gay Campbell, Lorrie Hough, Stan Fuka and I climbed one of them, the highest or second highest point on the ridge south of Juniper Lake. The lower rock was rotten, but it was good higher up and there were several excellent fifth-class pitches, the hardest being F6. We were rewarded on top by a magnificent view of Howser’s west face.
