ROUTE DESCRIPTION
David Lussier is a local mountain guide who operates out of Nelson, BC. Here is how he described the route in the 2000 Canadian Alpine Journal:

"The north face of Frog Peak is a beautiful, Half Dome-like granite wall..."

"In general the climbing was well protected on solid granite with some quartz intrusions. The upper part of the face is quite sheer, with many vertical crack systems, and is marked by a big roof. The lower part is broken by horizontal ledges, and there the dirty cracks aren't as continuous. The route we followed takes the major roof to the left via four sweet aid pitches. We rated the route IV, 5.10, A2. With some cleaning, one could probably free the aid pitches in the low 5.12 range. The lower part of the route will be a treat only for the lichen lover, but the classic upper pitches will make you want to return."
