Description 

These are the towers, fins, walls and spires uphill and east of the "main crag".


Getting There 

Hike the normal approach, but before getting to the main area, take a left on a climber trail at the shoulder just before scrambling down an obvious rock step. Follow the path (mostly obvious, partly flagged) uphill and south.

Panthalassa 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 5c  MT : Frog Rock : East Crags
FA 5/20/2012. Four main pitches, one belay move and another really short pitch to get to the tippy top. 5.7, 5.11, 5.9, 5.10, 5.5 (15'). Big pockets. The crux is boulder problem length. The first pitch is an approach pitch. The belay move pitch (The Cockles Traverse) has even worse rock than the first or the actual summit. The rest of the climb is solid. The summit is very cool, but the last 5-10' of the wall the rock quality seriously deteriorates. There are good bolts on the summit ri...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
