Jess Roskel­ley and Scott Cold­iron climbed a new route on A Peak in Mon­tana’s Cabi­net Moun­tains. They climbed from Nov. 18 to 21 and named their new alpine route Can­more Wed­ding Party AI5 M7 800 m. “Scott Cold­iron has been try­ing to get the cen­tral couloir of the north face of A Peak for a long time,” said Roskel­ley. “We bivouacked once again, this time on the north ridge, af­ter skirt­ing and climb­ing around mul­ti­ple gen­darmes and ice­cov­ered boul­der­fields in the dark. Early the next morn­ing, we dropped an­other 2,000 feet through alpine for­est to Gran­ite Lake and the trail out. We reached the car 11 hours af­ter leav­ing our bivouac.”
