There was no mention of any climbing routes on the north face in the Secor guidebook, so the next day we set out to see what we could find. We discovered a great line on what might be called the north ridge or buttress. It involved about four hundred feet of 4th or easy 5th class climbing. We stayed mainly on the most exposed, direct line to the summit. It was very fun climbing on good rock. The view from the top was great, as we could see the Evolution Basin spread out below us.
Mt. Spencer isn't a destination peak, but if you are passing through the Evolution Basin, don't miss it.
