Partially hidden by the colorful Treasure Peak, the impressive north face of Mt. Dade is often overlooked by climbers heading for Mt. Abbot or Bear Creek Spire. Liston and McKeen (first names unknown) made the first ascent of Mt. Dade in August of 1911. They described themselves as the “locators of this fine peak” on the summit message written on a torn scrap of Ladies Home Journal. Three members of the China Lake Search and Rescue Group made the first ascent of the north face of Mt. Dade. Their 1972 route climbed the 40-degree snow couloir above the glacier to a rock rib in the center of the face. As noted elsewhere, these climbers were part of the Occasional Peaks Gang that has made many first ascents throughout the range.
