North America, United States, Alaska, Bear's Tooth, East Face Attempt

Bear’s Tooth, East Face Attempt. Doug Klewin and I on June 15 attempted the east face of the Bear’s Tooth, the peak adjacent to the Moose’s Tooth and south of it in the intimidating cirque of the Buckskin Glacier. We climbed three pitches up the longest toe of the 4500-foot wall. Klewin was pysched to continue but I was not because of heavy objective danger in the form of ice falling from the upper ledges. Klewin plans to try the route again.
