South Slopes/South Ridge Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2009
South Slopes/South Ridge of Mt. French, Alpine II. Sept. 13, 2009. Fun scramble/climb with K. Bott. The French and Haig Glacier were completely dry and all ice, so we didn't rope up. We did pitch the exposed ridge crux section, but it is 4 class climbing. Protection was difficult to find, and only available with pitons. Only got belay stations, no intervening protection. The ridge crux is loose, but I know many who have solo'ed it without a rope.
