Jack Rutherford on SE Ridge, McHenry's Peak, 1969.

Description 

Roy Leggett's excellent photo of this ridge prompted me to dig out my own photos of this fun, easy 4th-5th class route. In July, 1969, I lead a group of climbing students from Perry Mansfield Boys Camp (Steamboat Springs) on a four day east to west trip across the RMNP, climbing several peaks as we progressed, McHenry's being one of the more memorable summits.

As time allowed, we dropped down from the ridge onto the east face and intermittently climbed more difficult 5th class sections along the way.


Location 

A bivy site at Stoneman Pass provided convenient access to the ridge for the five of us.


Protection 

We used only runners and natural pro, a goldline rope, swamis and downclimbed the route.
