The Tooth Peak (attempted)
It’s been my bucket list for last few years and still is. It’s more like mountaineering than TAY but I will post the report. On 12/23/20, I tried to go (summit) the tooth peak at Pineapple Pass. Snow conditions were good solid everywhere all the way to south ridge underneath the cornice. The rock was mostly dried with some patches of snow but manageable. We climbed with ski boots and crampons. However, due to the osteoarthritis on my hip, I had to bail at the 2nd pitch. But it was awesome experience of tasting a true PNW ski mountaineering with a guide.
The conditions at Tooth Peak were in prime as of 12/23/20.
The most difficult part of trip was this section: approaching S ridge.
