Description

The North Face of Pagoda Mountain is a beautiful 1,500' slab of granite rising up between 12,000' and 13.500' above the Glacier Gorge Cirque. The North Buttress splits this wide face in the middle and rises directly in a straight line to the summit. The chances of seeing another party on this face are close to nil, the rock is mostly excellent quality granite and the setting is high and airy.

Getting There

Approach is made via the Glacier Gorge, past the base of Spearhead. From the Spearhead bivys, allow 1 hr. to reach the base of the route.
