New Route on East Face of Mount Slesse

The East Face direct of Mount Slesse was climbed in July 1997 by Sean Easton and Dave Edgar and is one of the hardest routes like it in B.C.

The route has been attempted by senders Andrew Boyd and Will Stanhope, and Colin Haley and Dylan Johnson, but no one has repeated the monster aid route between the Northeast Buttress and the East Pillar.

Tony McLane and Paul Cordy have climbed a variation to the East Face called East Face Indirect at 5.10. It begins far to the left and climbs lower angle rock to join with the upper East Face.
