The South face.

Description 

From the south, the Stiletto appears to be another one of the Cathedral Spires, to the west of Sharkstooth. In fact, it is a rather long fin of rock running to the west.


Getting There 

The South face can be approached by walking past The Petit Grepon and up the talus to the base. The east face is most easily accessed from the Andrews Glacier drainage.

If you like steep, well-protected rock in an airy setting, you'll love this.1) From the toe of the south face, follow the crest of the buttress for around 650 feet stopping on a nice ledge just right of the prominent pillar where the wall steepens.2) Follow the right-facing dihedral system formed by the pillar past a little roof around 25 feet up. At around 90 feet, one can step right into a fantastic finger crack in a smaller dihedral. As this ends, loosely follow the dihedral to a large ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
