BETA PHOTO: The Northwest Face. Several variations are possib...


Highball the nice back face of Little Agassiz via several variations. Likely the most obvious line starts in the center at a good flake/rail. Make multiple high-step/long-reach moves to decent holds and top out trending vaguely left through a weakness and an easy top-out.

An obvious hold at mid-height is having some issues. A good chunk broke under the strain of my Herculean crimp and what is left is in a state of flux. Still it is a fun face climb.

To the right of this looks harder (and funner) and to the left looks easier.


This is the rear face that face away from the path back toward the car.


Pads and spotter. Or TR via glue-in above.

Jim, Is this intended to cover the area all the way across the face, toward the harder arete? Or just the face immediately to the right of the easier (NW) aretes?
