Rocky peak just north of the Alpental ski area.

Getting There 

Summer - Hike up the main trail until reaching a sign designating the start of the Source Lake Overlook trail. Take this trail, which minimizes elevation loss, to the valley to the south below the east face of The Tooth. There is a good climbers path with cairns to guide you.

Winter - Hike up the main trail all the way to Source Lake, then turn south in the valley. Hike up the valley until you are below the east face of The Tooth. Due to significant avalanche danger there, do not follow the summer path.

Scramble up to the notch that is just south of Pineapple Pass. Then contour around clockwise to get to the start of the climb. A direct scramble up to Pineapple Pass is not recommended, as this is the rappel route. The final portion of the contour around involves some class 3 to 4 scrambling, but it is short and unexposed. Some parties have elected to do a running belay here, but it is not necessary....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
