South Early Winter Spire/West Face & Southwest Rib

Mon, Aug 11, 2014

4 climbers left parking lot at 6am and were first on the route. Still lots of smoke from fires which obstructed views all day. Generally good conditions for this climb. No snow. Encountered one party of 2 climbing behind us. Our second team allowed them to pass in the loose gully leading to the final pitch. The flying ants we encountered the day before (we climbed this route the day after climbing the Arete with some basics) had largely dissipated. Shared rappel with them and everything went smoothly. Many goats leading to the base of the climbs which indifferent to us. Quite hot later in the day. 11h RT.
