Middle Tooth, West Face, Three Teeth. In October Jack Roberts and I climbed this direct route on the west face following a single crack system at the left edge of the prominent orange pillar. Entry was made from the gully on the left, with a traversing climb to the most difficult (second) pitch. Roberts led this, finding protection poor, and some of the holds quite friable. Rock improved on the upper pitches of this 700- foot route. NCCS III, F10.
