South East Face

(5 routes)

This face is made up of two steep cliff bands. The lower cliffs are best climbed as ice routes and often form up well; the scandalously steep upper cliff has some rock routes and scope for many more. Once above the lower cliff band, either traverse back down to the Summit Plateau or continue up to your right and finish with the top pitch of the East Ridge.
