Description

The north face is located just past the (u) Northeast Buttress and is the furthest right portion of Suicide Rock; it offers a decent selection of one and two pitch routes including many moderates. Do be aware that local guide services often utilize the shorter climbs on the far right for classes. An easy walk-off descent can be made from any of the routes that top out by following a trail down along the margin of the rock.

Getting There

Follow the trail which runs along the base of the rock past the (u) Northeast Buttress until you reach the north face which is the very last portion of the rock before it tapers off into dirt.
