Book North Face Ascent!

The Historic Cable Route

Being one of our favorites, we’ll often suggest this route as it’s the most direct way to reach the top. It’s steeper than the keyhole having a few sections of low 5th class climbing – meaning the hand and foot holds while generally obvious and plenty, the use of a rope is necessary for security. Being of a slightly more technical nature, the North Face does not see the high numbers of people that travel the Keyhole. Early season presents the North Face as a snow and ice climb – perfect for those wanting an introduction to mixed climbing and the opportunity to reach the summit. Late June sees the North face beginning to dry out getting in shape for a wonderful way to reach the top.  We’ll provide the gear and expertise. You supply the passion!
