Warren Teissier on the East face of the Dreadnaugh...

  • Description 

    This is a fun and easy 300+ foot scramble up the Southern part of the East face of the Dreadnought. It may not warrant a trip by itself but makes for a nice finish after doing Primal Rib or climbing on the Backporch.

    Approach by using the Porch Alley trail. The climb starts at the lowest point of the rock a few feet from the Southern arete of the East face. The rock is fairly good although a bit licheny in the begining and pro is as usual, hard to find

    Climb straight up 300 feet to the bottom of the Eastern summit block. From here, you can traverse right into the large ledge North of the two summits and scramble up the large dihedral to either summit or you can go left to the Southern edge of the East face and ascend to the top. This is a harder and much more exposed alternative.

    Descend back to the North ledge and scramble down the hole between the two summit blocks continuing West and South onto hiking terrain. Head East to intercept the Porch Alley.


    Standard Flatiron rack, mostly small pieces.

    A really nice Flatiron scramble that is solid and pretty easy until the top.... The 'direct' to the top is probably 5.7 through the bulge, or so it felt in approach shoes.
