Description

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

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

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
