North America, United States, California, Hawk's Beak, West Face

Hawk’s Beak, West Face. This peak is 11,120 feet high, a quarter mile south of Kirkwood Lake. It is a crest peak, helping form the northern boundary of Yosemite National Park. It is listed in the old Smatko guide, but does not appear in the Roper edition. John Nye and I climbed the nine-pitch west face in September (III or IV, 5.9 + ).
