Thanks to Daniele C. Struppa for adding this peak.
Located in the Alpental Valley, and easily reachable from Seattle through Interstate 90. The climb of the South Face of the peak (which does resemble a big tooth with a smaller tooth --a gendarme-- in front) is fully described in Nelson-Potterfield's 'Selected Climbs in the Cascades'. It is a four pitch grade II, class 5.4 climb. There is apparently avalanche potential on the approach during winter months.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
There are 2 trip reports for The Tooth.
