Description

This is the area that is somewhat broken above the left side of the Lower East Face. It faces east or northeast depending on exactly where you are.

Some of the better known routes in this less-traveled section include Zumie's Thumb, 5.9; Teeter Totter Pillar, 5.8; and The Window, 5.7 or M6; Kiener's Route, 5.3; Notch Couloir, easy snow. There is probably plenty of room for exploration here.

This area may be approached via a route on the Lower East Face, Lamb's Slide, or Flying Dutchman. Expect nearly a full-day for an adventure here.

Getting There

Most access this area from the Long's Area trailhead to Chasm Lake 4.5 miles, and then you choose your final bit of approach.
