A little taller and more impressive looking than its' smaller sibling. The north face has a couple of the most popular mid-grade routes in the group. The climbing is generally steep, on solid rock, and covered in good holds. However, with the amount of traffic that these routes see, comes a highly polished climbing surface.

Getting There 

The approaches all start from the top of Sella Pass. Most of the climbing can be reached in about 15 minutes.
