Description

The west face currently has about 15 climbs on it. Almost all of them are 2 pitches in length and most of the climbs are bolted. Many of these multipitch climbs are easily linked into a single pitch by strong climbers carrying a heap of quickdraws and alpine draws to limit rope drag.  Most anchors are equipped for rappel back down the West Face.  Other descent options include downclimbing the 4th class "standard route" or doing a single rappel down the East Face from a three bolt anchor. 

Getting There

Hike up the trail from Stevens Creek Trailhead. The first large rock is Big Rock. The west face is to the left.
