Abe Dickerson, Eli Watkins, and I climbed the three ice routes in November of '04. At that time the name "The Full Monte" (WI 4+) was given to the left most route, "Monte Python" ( WI5+) for the middle route, and "Monte Carlo" (WI 4 mixed) for the right route. The difficulty of the routes will greatly depend on the time of the season as i have seen them in much leaner conditions in years past. It appears that Jason Cronk and his partner found more and better ice than what we had found the year prior. Congrats to them for giving them a go. We rappelled from V-threads. These names reflect information i've gathered that the late Duane Monte had explored these routes in the late 80's or early 90's. Although i have no verification that he ascended any of the three routes, we felt it appropriate to apply his name to these routes. Duane has left an elusive and impressive history with his accomplishments in Idaho.
