Southeast Face line. Part of the first pitch is not shown, and the last pitch is mostly hidden. Also, the crux traverse on the second pitch is mis-marked. It goes a little higher in the corner, and then traverses straight left under the quartz band before going back up.

The 1,500-foot northeast face of Paiute Peak from the north slopes of Mt. Audubon. The Ghost Dancer Couloir takes the central line on the face (the right-hand of two prominent couloirs).

Looking up the crux second pitch. (Camera was mistakenly set to overexpose by two stops, so forgive the blown-out colors.) We climbed a crack line on the far right side of the photo, then traversed delicately back left to finish up the obvious chimney line. Sustained M4 and M5 moves with pretty good pro. Might be simpler to just climb straight up above Greg, but on the day we were there the right-hand line looked more appealing.

Mt. Neva's east face in early June 2004. There was about the same amount of snow in late June 2008. The face is about 600 vertical feet. We climbed four longish pitches to the snow below the summit.

Midway in the first crux sequence. Getting into a position something like this, and then moving the right foot up, are the key moves. The harder second crux starts above the red sling.

Despite the back-and-forth appearance of the line in this photo, the climbing flows well and a single rope runs very smoothly with a few strategically placed slings.

The two rock buttresses of Shoshoni Peak (June 2007). The Dieckhoff-Lowe Route (5.10+) and an unknown 5.9 ascend the left skyline of the left buttress. A new route, Mass Wasting, follows the obvious steep corner system to the top of the right buttress.

The traverse on Pitch 5, above all the loose flakes: The traverse wasn't too bad, despite the soaking wet hand and foot holds, but the big overhang afterward felt like 5.11 with our cold, wet hands.

The view from the spectacular perch atop Pitch 5, looking down the entire route. Lots of good climbing on this one, but lots of loose flakes and heads-up climbing, too. Pitch 5, for one, begins with a real garbage fest, starting about 10 feet above the belay.

The business on pitch 4: transitioning from this position to an undercling is the crux move. The short undercling turns the roof just above Dave's right foot.
