So the face is 4500 ft high, presumably the green down in the valleys are large trees and no one has dared to climb the lithoid spire because the rock is terrible?

First Ascent

Someone actually has climbed The Lithoid Cusp.

Re: First Ascent

Blake, I think we can safely assume jtsmob85 doesn't have a clue. He registered, made this one "troublemaker" post, then hasn't returned since. Goodbye to him, and good riddance...!

Re: First Ascent

i wholeheartedly agree. So it is still unclimbed! Not like I am planning to accomplish that. We are however planning to do Stimson and Cleveland this year.
