North America, United States, California - Sierra Nevada, Tehipite Dome, Southwest Face

Tehipite Dome, Southwest Face. In July, Norm Weeden, Curt Chadwick, and I climbed the 2500-foot face of Tehipite Dome. We started several hundred feet below and left of Fred Beckey’s route on the Dome. Three hot days of mixed free and aid climbing took us to a prominent ledge two-thirds of the way up. The fourth day we joined Beckey’s route and climbed to the summit for a final bivouac. The upper part of the dome consists of fun free climbing on rounded solution pockets NCCS VI F9 A4
