I really enjoyed this one. The rock is unbelievably solid and the it maintains a fairly consistent level of difficulty. Climbed with my friend Philippe before he moves back to the east coast.

Did both routes this summer. Both are pretty fun and the summit is awesome. The Gash is much easier early in the season when there is firm snow.

Been wanting to do this peak for a long while. My trad skills have fallen way off so one of my good friends (Bob Chase - CMS guide) led me and another friend up. Great climb, great summit! Incredible day! http://michael-hodges.com/blog/sharkstooth/

Fun day on the NE Ridge. Climbed with James and other than a brief off-route venture through some 5.8 terrain it was smooth sailing.

Great climbing on a route that could be protected with just stoppers all the way up.

The NE Ridge was a fantastic climb and my first experience on a multi pitch alpine route. Bravo!

MattGreeneAwesome climb!  Sucess!
Early July 2010 - What a striking peak! Did the NE Ridge, and paired up with a couple of other friendly climbers to speed up the descent rappels. I'd love to go back and try another route.

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010


Climbed with Jamie. I think he describes our "route" well. I highly do not recommend the east face route...way too many loose rocks. Bivouac Buttress just might be a worthy route.
It was a rare rain-free blue-sky-all-day July day in RMNP. You've gotta love those days when you're lucky enough to have them.

shanahan96east face meanderings  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010


climbed all over the east face(the infamous princo-pore variation) w/heather after passing the NE ridge start during the approach.

despite that oversight, we had an enjoyable day climbing the east face along with short sections of bivouac buttress and the northeast ridge. the numerous loose rocks on the face were more than we bargained for as heather spent too much time dodging missiles knocked loose by our rope on the first 2 pitches. above that, things were much smoother....thank goodness

once the dust settled, everything added up to another terrific RMNP alpine climb. now we all need to do is climb the northeast ridge on a return trip!

Nice hike in followed by a boulder scramble and slipping across some hard snow slopes. The rock climbing was fun and easy. We had a rare RMNP day with no rain or clouds.

Dave Crowther and I did the Northeast Buttress (or Ridge, whatever you want to call it). The road was closed due to construction, but the busses were running. We took the first bus of the day at 5am or so to the trailhead. The hike in was beautiful, but you have to pay attention at one point right after you cross a creek because the trail isn't visible on the slabby rocks. That's close to the end where you break right to go the Shark's Tooth as opposed to going straight to get to the Petit Grepon. Once you get up into the valley where you can see the Shark's Tooth, the apporach goes up the grassy ledges to the right. We went left (wrong and scary). The route itself is 6 pitches, but 2 of them are half length because of a drop that would give you terrible rope drag. The first pitch is easy, but then the next pitch has 2 distinct cruxes with sustained climbing throughout. The third pitch is a little easier to a huge ledge. Fourth goes up to a little notch where you have to stop because of rope drag. The 5th goes up a full pitch with huge exposure. Then the 6th is a short pitch that takes you to the top. The summit is plenty big. The rap station is down to the left (looking from where you came up), and there are 2 or 3 raps down to where you can scramble down into the gully behind the Petit Grepon, then down the gully to where you started. Don't leave any food in your packs, because the marmots or pikas or whatever they were will tear your pack apart (we climbed with one pack and left one pack at the bottom, which was torn into). A great climb - never too hard but those cruxes make you think.

Beautiful day for my first lead ever! A marmot got into our packs, but the incredible climb made up for it!

Amazing. Climbed North Face Direct. It was dark, wet and a bit rotten. Made for some interesting climbing. Pitty that someone removed the rubber shark from the register though.

Excellent climb with brenta. Route finding was a bit tricky at the bottom and we did two and a half odd, meandering pitches before finding the true ridge proper. We got rained on a bit during the rappel but otherwise had a great time.
