The Tooth/South Face


Basic Rock Climb - The Tooth/South Face

A classic rock climb in Snoqualmie Pass area. Participants spots reserved for Foothills Basic Climbing Community until 7/5. Other requests will be ignored before that date. Rope leads feel free to reach to me anytime.

  • Basic Rock Climb, Strenuous 2, Technical 3
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 5.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,500 ft

TBD, but very early (5am-ish at Snoqualmie Pass :)

This climb is prioritized for Foothills Basic Climbing Community (particularly students in need for rock climb to graduate). Rope leads, feel free to reach to me anytime.

While I am allowing early registration, it is contingent on successfully passing Rock 2 field trip.

This is a classic rock climb in the Snoqualmie Pass area and perfect first climb for basic students. It is also on Snoqualmie 20 list for the peakbaggers among us.

This will be a long day (don't get fooled by low elevation gain and distance :) It is not uncommon for Tooth climb to be a 12+ hours day.
