Description

This highly secluded wall contains only a handful of known routes. Accessible only in the summer, often by traversing a snow field after a 4-5 mile cross-country approach. The wall has few documented ascents and will likely consist of loose rock and route finding. However, if you're up for a unique adventure, the epic setting and seclusion won't leave you disappointed.

Getting There

To get to the North Face, take the slabs up and around to the Northeast of the summit on the Northeast side of May Lake. Descend the obvious valley toward the North Face. You must traverse a steep snow field to access the base. Depending on the snowfall, this could be incredibly dangerous. Do not approach this wall if you are not knowledgeable and experienced in snow travel.
