    Granite questions??

    Hi Jim,

    I just came back (unsuccesfully) from Granite and we turned around at Tempest Mountain which is 4 hours shy of the summit.

    I was wondering if the proper summit route from Tempest Mountain involves climbing the face of the mountain that is visible to us from Tempest or if there is a more “normal” route from the hidden face (behind) that we don’t see from Tempest.

    Basically , I was wondering if we would have gone through the col from Tempest/Granite, if we would have seen a more proper route from there.

    I am asking you this question because I intend of going back there in mid August 2003 and I would like to be reassured that there is another route beside the 90 degree vertical that we saw from Tempest.

    Thank you in advance.

    Serge
