Shirley hiking down following our climb of Fishhook Arete on Mt. Russell. Conditions were pretty chilly throughout the day - hence the full on arctic attire. First ~2 pitches of the route are visible. Pitch one as drawn is how we got onto the arete. This is the way Supertopo recommends it. Pitch is about 90 feet long and pretty sustained - also has some smallish pro on lower half and a touch of sh!tty rock (....though compared to Oregon stuff, I can't really complain). First ~2.5 pitches of Mithral Dihedral (III 5.9) are also visible on the left side (June 19, 2005).
