Summit Crags

(24 routes)

The summit area consists of all the crags above 2400 metres including those forming the crater rim and summit dome. Each of the crags is detailed in clockwise direction starting with Crater Face of Sharks Tooth, Stargate Slab, and West Face.

Although the summit area generally lacks cohesive ice conditions found elsewhere on the mountain, there are a number of good single pitches with generally safe belays.

The summit area consists of all the crags above 2400 metres including those forming the crater rim and summit dome. Each of the crags is detailed in clockwise direction starting with Crater Face of Sharks Tooth, Stargate Slab, and West Face.
All the crags are involved when completing a crater rim traverse.
Over the decades many climbers have scaled and explored routes all around the summit area, most have not left detailed notes of their routes nor names to define them.
