Mixed Alpine Climbing Early on the Frendo Spur

Mixed Alpine Climbing Early on the Frendo Spur

After picking our way through the bergshrund via headlamp, we weave up the Frendo's initial ice face.

A 4AM start meant that these steep mixed pitches were climbed in relative dark and very cold temps; here the first light of day enables a picture and reveals the awesome exposure.

Photo from the Loran Smith Collection, August 1985.
