I want that climb, have for years. It looks so do-able from the lake. A buddy and I flew the GM looking for last years lost climber. I tried to hook up with STM Guides when they searched the route but even they didn't climb it all the way because it was out of condition. his body has yet to be found.

This shot was taken before Jon went missing, but I conducted searches on the NE,E,S,and NW sides of the mountain (different days) for him later in the summer- nothing, not even a clue. The SMG told me they did the Chockstone Couloir to eliminate that possibility? (I hope that was the truth, because I always thought that if he tried to descend that to get down quickly, he would have most likely slipped, especially over the 5.5-5.10 section of rock that would have been exposed that time of year). Perhaps this year will reveal some clues.
