P 13,841, North Face. In May Larry Derby and I climbed this 800- foot face, at the head of Square Gulch, some 15 miles south of Lake City. We scrambled up the lower face via a third-class rounded buttress in the right center of the face and climbed a snow arête to the first steep cliff band. We followed a snow ramp to the right for two pitches to the ledge separating the upper from the lower cliff band. We then climbed directly above on a sometimes rotten prow to the flat summit. NCCS III, F8.
