August 13, The Tooth

Hooked up with Frank, Don and his daughter Wendy for the classic Snoqualmie Pass climb of the Tooth.  Weather was perfect and company excellent.   We left the parking lot at Alpental shortly after 8am and made it back to the car at 5:10.  A full day adventure.  We managed to be the first party on the route, with three other parties arriving before we finished.   Frank did the first roped pitch, then alternated with me up the four pitches.  Don led his rope the whole route with Wendy cleaning the gear as she went.
