The West Slabs

Mount Olympus North Face

Salt Lake City, Utah
Wasatch Mountains

The West Slabs climb with approach takes about 5-8 hours
depending on whether or not you use ropes
If you use ropes, there are about 11 pitches to climb.
Only the first 2 pitches really require ropes
We tried it without, and everyone made it to the top.

Fall 1999
