Define "good"?
Maybe grab a copy of Fred's book and use it as a "to do" list?

John Scurlock's website has lots of eye candy:

The Diamond on the north face of Bear Mountain has never been climbed as far as I know:

Long approach from the Canadian side, little water opportunities...

Go get it!

You guys are all awesome!!! Thanks for the replys!! if i was not sure about this i would not be asking! Cumfort is for normal people!!!!!!! and as far as good, like Extreem Alpine routes to weekend peak grabs are all fair game.

I believe Pete Doorish and Dale Farnham climbed the diamond on Bear Mt.

Looking at the north face of Bear Mountain from the summit of Mt. Redoubt was educational. I thought we'd done something pretty good by climbing the NE Face of Redoubt. It's over 4,000 feet, conditions had been sub-optimal, and I was feeling like a hard-core alpinist. Looking at that monster across the valley shrank what we'd just done into proper perspective. Shrank something else, as well.
