West Face rock routes

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
Situated on the West Face of Rolling Pin beneath the 35m abseil descent from the main summit, as seen from below, not the abseil at the end of the ridge. There are five routes, ranging in grade from 15 to 22, all on natural gear, all single pitches, on clean rock. (They were cairned at the time of their first ascents.) The crag is best approached from the hut, along the Iso Glacier (the one footing the West Face of Rolling Pin), well worth the walk.
