Climbing the Tooth in the Alpental Valley

Another multi-pitch trad climb done!

This Sunday we climbed The Tooth, a 400′ 4 pitch 5.4 climb in the Alpental Valley (summit is at 5,604 feet). Not particularly difficult it is often someones first multi-pitch trad or trad lead. Since I did the west ridge of Chair Peak last summer this was my second multi-pitch trad climb. No leading just yet!

Since I often ski in the Alpental valley it is super cool to check off another peak here. However, with the long multi-hour approach to the climb with scrambles over boulder fields and snow I don’t think it is high on my repeat list :).

Thanks to Dave for leading the way.

Here’s the hike in and out on Strava. Funny enough I forgot to bring my GPS with me on the climb :).
