Mount Temple, First Winter Ascent. On January 3, 1969, Dave Haley and I climbed Mount Temple. From camp in Paradise valley below Sentinel Pass, two hours of wallowing in waist-deep snow took us to the pass. From there we followed the wind-blown southwest ridge instead of the normal route, which was too steep for snowshoes. A short ice couloir presented the only difficulty.
