This evolving list is for mid-grade big mountain routes that do NOT involve mixed climbing. Perfect for the aspiring alpinist with sound technical skills who relishes the commitment of a big exposed mountain top-out but has not yet graduated to winter climbing (or glacier travel).

I will add more when I can - please please add routes / message me with suggestions.
