Matt Wells on pitch 7


this is the beautiful tower northwest of baron spire.. start at the obvious off width in the center of the face. Branch right at the top of the 3rd and follow incipient face cracks aiming for the large roof block. beware of the 5th pitch, as Mattie Wells is a bad mofo. stellar rock, but quite runout..5.10 moves 20-30' above gear. Gain the large roof and set a belay. The block is a bit spooky but... lieback the right side and mantle out, awesome hands follow. couple more pitches of steep blocky moderates lead to the stellar summit. run down the snow filled couloir climbers right of the formation.


approach same as baron spire, tower is obvious from saddle
