Dos Cabezas South Peak from the ridge traverse. A vertical crack splits the left-most third of the face with brush at its base. A few feet further down to the right against the face is a large, lichen-covered rock behind which a ramp leads to a brushy ledge appearing to the right and leading diagonally across the face to a last visible bush on the right. Here a hidden gully leads diagonally up to the left to the summit. We first tried the obvious ramp on the lower right of the peak but it ended in very exposed and difficult rock (2017-03-04).

To gain the summit ridge of Table Tooth, one can bypass the steep wall at the top of the ramp by climbing this on the north side lower in the ramp, then turning left just beyond the tree (2022-12-31). Photo by Paul McClellan.

I had the good fortune to spend most of my life in the Pacific Northwest, where I discovered the challenges, joys, and addiction of hiking, skiing, and climbing in the Cascade Range wilderness. Since then I have enjoyed exploring the mountains of the USA.
