Description [Suggest Change]

This crag was climbed regularly in the past, as evidenced by the old Southwestern Mountaineers topo (see photos), and it looks awesome from a distance. Until February 2018, there were no reports of climbing here for decades. The rock quality is generally excellent and acceptably clean on the established routes.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Don't be fooled by the name - False Tooth is not close to THE Tooth, nor will taking the Tooth approach trail get you there. Take the approach for Wholt's Welt Wall, but veer left/NE toward False Tooth once feasible.
