Mount Mather

August 2003 with Seth Adams and Andy Knust

Our plan had been to repeat Jeff Benowitz's route which follows an ice gully up to the ridge above the rock towers. The glacier had surged, revealing a mess of cracks and an enormous bergschrund threatended by rockfall. We opted to try the ``complete'' North Ridge. This involved lots of third and fourth class climbing over horrid rock dusted with snow. After 1000 metres of this, we came to a notch of fifth class climbing which accessed the snow 1200 metres of snow and ice to the summit. Due to time and weather issues, we turned around.
