Description:

Babcock's East summit has an impressive north face. The line I took was a chimney system on the north face of the NE buttress. Several lines can be done. The line I took was 5.6/5.7 up a snow/ice filled chimney system in mid Oct. The rock may be loose during the summer, but, in winter the north face is frozen pretty solid.
