      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

My First Time on Da Toof

Recommended Posts

nice work j. it goes in about ~2 hours to half a day (w/ postholio), and there are options for climbing/downclimbing--which is nice if you want to stay outta others' line of fire. (though many here would prob. recommend a weekday to avoid gapers.)

 

there's also a less-exposed descent to downclimb if the prospect of reversing the catwalk daunts. have fun!

Though I refuse to advocate soloing, the way down the N ridge of the Tooth is a bit easier, and is a good alternative if you are comfortable on 4th class.

 

I have not car-car'd the Tooth in under 2 hours.

yup, echo chucK's words, i don't advocate soloing w/o qualifiers; it's serious shite. however, if you are keen, descending an easier route is the safer way to go.

Ok I’ll admit it I have never climbed the Tooth, never been up close to it but I can’t help wonder if people climb all over the thing. From the picture it looks like there is a lot of rock. Is it all easy? Are there steeper sections that could be climbed? Is the rock crap? (like Guye peak) Inquiring minds want to know!

Ya Erik but would it be an FA? That's the only way we'll find a sponser. Seriously why isnt there a million different routes up the thing? Is it ine big rubble pile?

Are you saying it is granite? Snoqualmie granite rules! I must say I have trouble believing the Tooth is granite. There are lots of cool granite crags around Snoqualmie though.

The east face is 5.8 or 5.9. Theres a suppose to be a 10a handcrack to the climbers left of the standard route. I sure someone here has done it.
