East Face Direct Mt Idaho
Pitch one started from the base of the chimney scrambling up easy white rock to where the wall steepens at the dark rock band. We followed a right angling crack/seam up the steep but featured black rock for 20 feet before leaving the angling crack to follow a vertical seam that took small gear. After about 100 feet a sloping gravel filled ledge was reached with lower angle (5.6) black rock above. The lower angled rock was good but there was no protection. I belayed at the top of the black rock on the right end of a ledge. We had to simul about 15 feet for me to reach the anchor. In this picture I'm just about to leave the right angling crack for the vertical seam. 75m, 5.9
