mt williard
« on: February 09, 2010, 07:43:04 PM »

 On Sat feb 6, 2010 I think i climbed a new line located half way between east face slabs right, and the cleft. the route climbs steep thin ice to thicker with enough ice for a good screw around 25 feet or so at a small ledge, then you can step right to a small corner or continue strait up. (head right for better pro) gain the next ledge and more pro, step back left and down, climb another corner to a good knifeblade and head up to easier ice and the trees, there we left a rap ring on orange tech cord. I will have pics soon as our camera had an epic! luckily Mike Mullins and Richard Duocette were walking by as I placed the pin and Mike snapped some photos. I will post them as soon as i get them

was up there 2 weeks ago and there was a lot of interesting drips and drools all over the place. hard to imagine that someone hasn't played up there over all the years, but it could be. regardless I guess if it's not already written up, you do it and tell people about it, it's yours.  :D

It wouldnt surprise me to find out its been climbed, that place sees a lot of traffic. The pictures will help sort it out im sure. If it turns out to be new I will call it Deranged

the one + thing is that every year different drips form. and regardless, I assume it was fun. [grin] BTW did you leave the pin in place?

 I am pretty sure it has been climbed.I climbed a route in that area in the 90s that sounds about the same.I do not think it comes in on a regular basis but it was in a couple of years ago also.

I did a route there in the early 80's that sounds similar. But what do I know. I can't remember what I had for breakfast. Ah aging!!

When I did the route I figured it had been climbed.

Yes I left the pin, and a rap anchor in some small fir trees. The pics should tell if it is the same route climbed by Jim and Steve.as

I've looked at that area dozens of times and was sure there was something in the guidebook about those potential lines, but nothing, so I would say claim it. It's probably been done, but it needs to be documented at some point.

FRA = First Recorded Ascent (by a guidebook author)
