Routes in Northwest Face

Northwest Ridge T 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b

Description

The Northwest Face is on the right-hand side of the north face, and is relatively untouched, with moss, lichen, and loose rock.

There is one old trad route here (Northwest Ridge) that was first climbed many years ago, but doesn't see much traffic from climbers today.

The only documented route in this area:

35. Northwest Ridge, 6, 3p, gear. Adventure route to the summit of the tower.

Getting There

This side of the crag can only be accessed when the water level in the creek is low enough to hop rocks or wade. From the Boulder Falls parking area, hike upstream until you are at the west end of the north face. Go down to the creek and find a spot to hop rocks or wade. Cross the creek and go up a short, steep gully with a broken tree just west of the north face. The Northwest Ridge route begins about 75' up this gully.

This approach takes about 10 minutes (if you can get across the creek).
