The Tooth/South Face

First time attempting the tooth, very low visibility and little to no boot tracks made route finding difficult. Broke over the clouds reaching pineapple pass made for a more enjoyable but still blistering cold ascent of the south face, climbing in boots and gloves, many cracks/holds filled with snow and ice making this 5.4 slightly more intimidating. Ultimately we ended up turning around at the base of the last pitch due to a system rolling in over the mountains and light fading fast. An exciting day, seemed to be the only ones up there in a while, and maybe for another while as the winter weather has seemed to really kick off. Great climb!
