Minuteman Tower, East Face
|[ Sizes: Orig | Small | Thumb ]|
Pitch 6 of East Face starts with a roof/flake pull. Nelson and Potterfield call this pitch 5.8.....that's one burly 5.8 if you ask me! Think the roof move deserves a 5.9 rating...then again, what do I know. Angle suggested by photo is accurate. This is granite though it doesn't look or feel like it. For a view of this roof/flake feature from below, see here. Also check out this outstanding photo of crux 2 pitches from cascadeclimbers.com (August 7, 2005).
