North Face of Johannesburg Mountain
The first ascent was made by the "Ptarmigan Traverse Party" on their amazing wilderness traverse. They called the mountain "Elsbeth" at the time. Miners began exploring steep terrain on the north face in the 1890s. One such miner, Billy Murtagh, climbed technical terrain to reach his claim with the aid of spikes and holes drilled in the rock!
