Climbing Routes
North-East Face/Ridge II 5.5
This is a short route though the face it climbs is quite impressive. Being quartzite, the rock is generally very good, giving excellent protection and solid belays. The climbing is typically 5.2 - 5.4. Numerous variations are possible, particularly at the bottom and top of the route. Dougherty, Selected Alpine Climbs page 30
