Description [Edit]

SE Buttress 5.9 **** III (9-10 pitches)
A fine crack climb, following the ridge behind "The Monk" (semi-detatched feature on the lower right side of the South face). The 1st pitch crux (headwall) can be bypassed by using the crack on the left (5.8).

Location [Edit]

Begin to the left of The Monk and climb the ridge and buttress on right side of the South Face.

Descend by to the West by the walk-up route.

Protection [Edit]

A wide selection of nuts and cams (up to #3 Camalot).

Awesome climb. One of the best moderate alpine climbs I've done in the Cascades. Aug 1, 2016
