DETAILS

A climb of the Tooth is an exceptional introduction to multi-pitch rock climbing.

Perched high above Snoqualmie Pass, the Tooth is one of the most famous alpine rock climbs in Washington for a reason. Solid rock, beautiful views, and fun climbing are in store for those willing to take-on the challenge. Although the climbing is not technically difficult (5.6 or beginner/intermediate level) this climb still requires stamina due to the hike to and from the spire.

Participants should have previous experience climbing either at a gym or in an outdoor setting and should be comfortable rappelling and belaying a lead climber. If you would like to participate in this climb but do not have these skills consider joining an Intro to Outdoor Rock Climbing Course with us.

  • Overview of Trad Climbing Gear – cams, nuts, slings
  • Review of tying-in as a follower
  • Techniques to climb rock faces and cracks
  • Cragging area ethics and Leave-No-Trace
  • How to clean a pitch
  • Rope management at a belay
  • Belaying a lead climber in a multi-pitch environment
  • Efficient transitions at the belay
  • Anchoring in multi-pitch terrain
  • Down climbing and rappelling

ITINERARY
One day of Adventure

We hike in from the Source Lake Overlook trailhead for three hours to reach the base of The Tooth near Pineapple Pass.

Once at the start of the route we review belaying a lead climber and removing protection as a follower. We also learn rope management at a multi-pitch belay. Once systems are practiced we begin the climb.

At each belay you will be anchored by your guide, gear is handed back to the leader, the rope is stacked so it won't tangle, and the system will be checked for security. You will then climb another pitch of rock until you reach the summit. To descend you will down-climb on belay, lower, or rappel down portions of the route back to the base.

Testimonials
  • Climbing at the Tooth at Snoqualmie Pass near Seattle

    As a newbie to rock climbing, I took the intro to outdoor rock climbing with Miyar Adventures. Our lead instructor, Sandeep was great and so was his assistant who joined us for the course training at Gritscone. As a group of five, we were able to tackle five climbs in one day ranging from 5.5 to 5.9. This allowed each climber more opportunities to practice the techniques, work on the commands, and gain experience with various rock formations. It’s a great value esp. considering we were a small group. Sandeep is a knowledgeable climber and a genuinely nice person. We hung out for a bit after the course and had great conversations with interesting people!

    I took the Intro To Outdoor Rock Climbing Course August 24th and had a great time! The instruction given by Sandeep Nain was well organized and detailed. Our infield curriculum included review and practical applications of climbing gear, climbing knots, climbing commands, belay techniques, climbing ethics and of course safety, which Sandeep emphasized throughout this one day course. Our group then had the opportunity to do 5+ top rope climbs on routes varying in difficulty, great work out! On top of meeting some great people we finished the day with a dip in the river! You can't beat that! I highly recommend this course.
