The Steep Face of the Third Tower

Somewhere on this face are two lines I tried to lead thinking they were the "fifth class crack/steep face" that Alois Smrz describes here on Summitpost. Both failed to go.

THIS IS THE CORRECT WAY TO GO!

This photo shows the "fifth class crack/steep face" of my description for the North Ridge of LPP. Go straight up an area of weakness (easy 5th) and continue up until you reach the skyline ridge. You did not err reading my description, this is the area (in general).

Thanks Alois!

In that case, I hope this photo proves useful to future ascensionists! We couldn't find any way that went under maybe 5.9ish, but that certainly doesn't mean a passage easier that that doesn't exist...just that we couldn't locate it! Ha!
