low 5th class 600m (lll) Infrequently climbed but a very aesthetic feature of Elkhorn with great climbing and atmosphere. The South Ridge is key to access and descent for many of the possible routes on the East Face. Approach the south-west route from the gravel flats on the ERT or traverse below the west face from the north-west approach to the crux of a Y-shaped gully below the south-west face. Hike directly up the right (south) branch of the Y to a col at toe of the South Ridge between Elkhorn & Mt Colwell. (see page 225). Start directly on the ridge crest with easy ground to start. Follow steepening gullies and chimneys remaining on the crest to South Summit. FA: Joe Bajan, Ron Facer 1971 King’s
