Ascent Trip Report

South Face of the Tooth. Routefinding is pretty straightforward with a (clear-ish) bootpath. Much of the upper talus field has comfy, hidden boot paths on the climber's left side so keep an eye out. Final rap down Pineapple Pass is about 200ft and is a slog...faster just to walk back down the south side of the gendarme. The route itself was pretty straightforward with a sling belay station setup about every 50ft. The last pitch had a belay station set up at the top of "the ramp" (climber's left) and the 5.6 var (climber's right).
