Really more of a mountaineering adventure.
climb the N E face of the teapot handle past a bolt (crux) to a good ledge and traverse left. Then it's pretty much a 4th or an easy 5th class solo up the east ridge to the summit of the handle. simul-needle rap off the west end to the notch. 5.7move off the narrow saddle to a ledge and a nice hand crack leading to a steep 5.9 ow to the top of the teapot. scramble down the west end to a rap station, rap to the next notch. poor pro leads to a descent bolt and a 5.7 move traversing to the north side of the spout ending at the west end and a 2bolt anchor. climb the awkward crack (5.10) or the Cinco de Mayo or Bircham Tatum variation to the final summit. rap dbl rope to the north side or twice single rope to the south side.


easiest approach from cow pies trail otherwise scramble up from below on schnebly hill road.


trad dbl set.
