The East Face and East Buttress routes are considered two of the finest alpine rock climbs in the United States. Anybody who has mastered the basics of hand and foot techniques, knows how to belay, and feels OK at these altitudes can attempt this climb with us. See our instructional programs for more information about learning these skills. The climbing is on firm white granite and the views are exhilarating. These climbs are best done in the summer and fall months.

The Direct Crack is a long and more strenuous climb. The hardest moves are 5.9, with the exception of one short aid move that goes free at 5.10d. After several pitches of climbing it joins the second half of the East Face route.
