INTRO

While on the Viennese-Clarke Traverse in the Chehalis in July 2017, I was struck by the summit slabs on the great north face of Viennese (shown in the photo on the right, taken in July 2017): the rock was impeccable white granite that had hand-sized cracks splitting the face for hundreds of feet. After the trip, I checked my Alpine Select guidebook. Indeed, there was a route that went straight up the center of the slabs: Derektissima—"Superb climbing. An appealingly direct line," the guidebook noted. Rated 10a and 18 pitches long, the route was the easiest up the north face of Viennese. I vowed to come back and climb it.
