This is the first full TR I've written in about seven years. Man, time can really fly.

We believe this is the first recorded ascent of any route on the south face of Little Tahoma.

I recall that Gary Brill and a friend climbed a route in that vicinity from Paradise in winter in the late 1970s. I'm surprised that Beckey's guide doesn't seem to mention anything on that side (based on a very quick skim of the book). I can't remember whether Gary ever wrote up his climb.

Maybe Gary was blindfolded when he climbed it laugh

It is a relative term. Reading Blakes TR for Valkyrie is cool and I view him as a 'young' guy. I meant old relative to guys Blake's age. I recall running repeats on Mt Si. There was a H.S. basketball team walking up. One of the players asked "Sir, do you mind telling me how old you are?" "40" I replied. He shook his head as he couldn't imagine how someone my age could run up Mt Si.

Relative indeed. My climbing partners give me the: "man, I hope I'm able to do half the stuff you're doing when I'm your age"...

Getting older is beautiful if a person takes good care of themselves along the way. Oh and a bit of luck comes in handy as well.

I checked with Gary and determined where he climbed. See photo below:



The red line on the left shows the Campbell/Gauthier route. The green line in the middle shows the route Gary Brill took way back when. The purple line on the right is the normal route from the Ingraham Glacier up Little Tahoma. Congrats on an attractive looking route.
