North America, United States, California, Yosemite, East Tooth, East Face

East Tooth, East Face. The Three Teeth of Sawtooth Ridge offer an impressive view from the west, but from the east they are even sheerer and less recognizable. The east faces of the Middle Tooth and East Tooth merge into one imposing 700-foot wall. In June, Fred Beckey, Jim Jones, and I made the first ascent of this face in a half day. The climbing is all fifth class, moderately sustained, and very enjoyable in the alpine surroundings. The route is in the center of the face up an obvious crack system that works left. NCCS III, F7.
