The Tooth/S Face
Alpental parking lot
**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.
Please email me to ask to sign up. Let me know if you have done any conditioners or other climbs this year in your email too. Tacoma students only until 6/24.
