Trip Report    

Basic Alpine Climb - The Tooth/South Face

Great intro route with a mix of trail hiking, bushwacking, easy-moderately steep snow travel, scrambling and easy rock climbing.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • We had a long day since we were 2 rope leaders, 4 followers and we spent bit of extra time negotiating route finding and snow conditions. Weather was just about perfect with a mix of sunny and party cloudy skies. It was good that the group had ice axes since the snow was occasionally hard and steep but melting fast. I personally would prefer to do this climb when there is either plenty of snow or no snow on the approach. We worked a bit harder since "it is kind of in between". Awesome group of climbers and the views from the summit were fantastic.
