Solid dry rock on and firm snow below route. First time on more than one pitch. I worked through my bad nerves and enjoyed the company of several others.

Just enough snow to use the winter approach. Snow was soft, but no post holing. No one else was on the route mid-week. The route was nice and dry.

This was a week after the first fall snow storm. That made the approach interesting. The ledges had a fair amount of snow but the walls were clear. The crux for the day was on the first pitch where a normally unnoticed off-width crack was full of melting snow. I discovered it's very hard to climb with no feeling in your fingers.

willis4himLost y Garmin GPS
Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013
I lost a Garmin Cx60 (I think) GPS this past Saturday on a hike starting at the Snow Lake trailhead and then pushing east just above Source Lake and ending at the base of the SW face of The Tooth. I realized it was missing at the top of the slot gully just to the right of Pineapple Pass. If you found it, please return it. I am willing to give a cash reward. My email is willcornwell@gmail.com and phone number is 334-294-9245. Thank you!

Also, the route (actually, every route on the whole rock), was extremely crowded. There was a group of 3 in front of us that we had to wait over an hour to get past the first belay at a tree. We ended up bailing after sitting on the side of the rock in the scorching sun for two or three hours waiting on all the groups. It basically sucked, and the climbing wasn't good enough to justify all the hassle. Either one needs to be first on the rock or come late in the day when the traffic has thinned out.

This felt more like a mixed climb...there was snow covering all the ledges and at one point having a picket would have been nice to mitigate the huge runouts. I didn't really need much pro though...the climb was pretty straightforward. Two pitches of climbing (with 70m rope) led us to the summit. 4 raps took us down (we rapped the snow gully heading down Pineapple Pass which involved jumping off a cornice on rappel!)

There was a huge recent slab avalanche than ran down on Source Lake which was cool to see on the hike in. The slide was 10 feet thick at the base! Gorgeous weather and firm snow in the morning. Approach took less than 2 hours

Headed up to The Tooth hoping to beat the weather and climb the south face in mixed conditions. Had trouble getting to the base of the gendarme (cornice fell on me) and then decided to go up and over the damn thing instead of around the back, which led to the coldest belay ever as the weather moved in. worried about rapidly deteriorating weather and avalanche conditions we bailed, but fully intend to return in January or February.

Climbed the Tooth as my first alpine trad route in June 2009. Conditions were sunny as can be with snow the whole way on the approach.

The best advice i can provide for this route is to rappel ASAP or you will be sitting on top for a long time.

Fun first time route and easy climbing.

Despite being cold and dark, the approach felt strong and the climbing went well. But between having to brush snow off of every hold and being a few days past the shortest day of the yrear, we ran out of time before the last pitch and bailed.

I remember that Mt St Helens was having some steam eruptions that week, but despite being a clear day it was too far to see anything.
