Being an ex Teton dink, I remember a picture of a Dave Jenkins 3rd classin' the steep pitch on the Run-Don't-Walk Couloir on Mt. Owen in the Jenny Lake ranger station. I can only assume it's the same guy (??)
Mountain 60 (p.14): "joe Kaelin and Bill Pilling made the third ascent of the right-hand route (ramp route?) on mt. Kitchener's north face. The ascent was hampered by the fact that Pilling broke his ice axe just above the bergschrund, so the two days' climbing time was spread over three". 1977.
I just recently scanned these old slides from Tobin and Jack Roberts' ascent. Don't know the exact date but I think it was the winter of 1978-79.
The avalanche was in the morning before doing the route. They were camped near the bottom of a snow field below the face. Tobin said they heard a cracking as the summit cornices broke and he shot a picture as the ice roared down the face towards them, then they dived into the tent as if it would do any good. As they cowered in what they thought would be their tomb, there was a loud 'Foomf' sound as the avalanche hit the tent. They climbed out to find a foot deep of ice crystal snow had harmlessly swept over and deposited onto them. Agreement was made then and there to start the climb before another avalanche scoured the route.
Any other info regarding this ascent would be greatly appreciated.
