Unknown routes on the tooth. These two cracks are off to the right of the main face. Anyone climbed them recently?

Karl, who knows if that was even the first? Maybe some German with a shillelagh back in the 50s ... for the record we got off by wandering up the ramp about 50' & finding a tree to rap off of ... Feb 10, 2012
Dalen, it appears we are both correct. PH states that he took his longest fall ever here and you finished the pitch. Your party must have done two shorter pitches rather than one 50m pitch. I cannot say where your rap station was but we placed a bolted belay where the next pitch "should" go up. Perhaps Motes can add comments. It is safe to say that the crack has been cleaned once each decade. The next party should be prepared. Jan 12, 2012

It sure looks like the line we did, Karl. But as I say my memory is fuzzy. Can't say for sure we even finished it or how we got off ... we left no fixed gear that I can remember. I just remember Paul dangling below me off a red Titon (a short first pitch had led to this hanging stance). But I'll defer to your judgment as it is undoubtedly fresher than mine. My logbook gives Incisor a 5.9/5.10 rating. Either way, like Aaron says about that other line, it was much harder than it looked.... Jan 11, 2012
