Description 

From the south, the Stiletto appears to be another one of the Cathedral Spires, to the west of Sharkstooth. In fact, it is a rather long fin of rock running to the west.

Getting There 

The South face can be approached by walking past The Petit Grepon and up the talus to the base. The east face is most easily accessed from the Andrews Glacier drainage.

At around 90 feet, one can step right into a fantastic finger crack in a smaller dihedral. As this ends, loosely follow the dihedral to a large ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
