The Tooth/S Face
Mercer Island P&R
**REMINDER** This climb is subject to the PRIORITY CLIMBS LIST. Please verify that your branch has priority for this climb.
At Pineapple Pass rope up and ascend directly up the face to a broad ledge about 50' below the summit. From here, either ascend broken rock somewhat to the right of the center face, or climb directly to the notch below the summit by a thin left-facing flake, or go left on a narrow ledge (the Catwalk) and then scramble to the summit. If descending via the N ridge, take ice axes to the summit (snow on the N side), this is the recommended descent in view of the traffic volume on the mountain, even in midweek. If rappelling, be careful of ascending climbers.
We will meet at the Mercer Island P&R at 6am. Directions: 1. Get on I-90 E (from Seattle) 2. Take exit 7A for 77th Ave SE 3. Turn left onto 77th Ave SE 4. Turn right onto N Mercer Way
