Revelation Mountains

The original objective for Ben Silvestre and Peter Graham was the central couloir on Pyramid Peak, but they discovered that they would not be able to land on the Revelation Glacier, so transferred their attentions to the E Face and E Summit of Jezebel. Their first attempt was aborted in bad weather, and the second due to insufficient ice screws for the first hard pitch. They returned with more gear, and completed the pitch, which turned out to be the crux. Further hard pitches led to a good bivouac site. The next day included a 50m pitch of steep good ice, followed by easier ground to a rock tower. From here they abseiled into an easy couloir which they followed to the summit. They bivouacked a few pitches below the summit, and descended the next day. They hoped to attempt another route after a few days rest, but the weather intervened with another big snow dump.
