Routes in The Flagpole

West Face T 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b A0

Description

Hike 7 miles with 4,000' of elevation gain for two pitches of climbing, one of them being a bolt ladder on sketchy bolts? Sign me up! This route's for you. Once you're standing on top of this finger of granite with the ground falling below you for thousands of feet, you'll realize it was worth it.

Getting There

Use my photo for specific approach beta. But do approach up the Stuart Lake Trail and Asgard Pass. Nelson's climbing guide has historically recommended a South side approach up Crystal Creek drainage. I've done this too and although scenic, is so much longer and troublesome to get to the start of the route.
