Mount LeConte's East Face

Mount LeConte - East Face

Capping the north fork of the Tuttle Creek drainage is 13,960-foot Mount LeConte, the tallest of a striking series of pinacles that include Mount Corcoran and the Sharktooth. In addition to rock, Mount LeConte has a marvelously snowy north shoulder, as well as a complex network of tricky east-facing couloirs.
