Description

The majority of the climbs are 2-4 pitches in length. There are a few single pitch lines located on the opposing ends of The Tooth. Be wary of falling debris from the hikers above. The rock quality is similar to Arthur's Rock.

Descents - there are eyebolts on the Center Tooth. A single 60m rope rappel off the east face gets you to the ground. The north and south top outs are walk-offs.

The bolts on the route straight into the horses mouth have suspicious corrosion on the lower portion of the route, so a Anchor Replacement Initiative is underway for the spring or summer of 2013 by NCCC.
