Stein Mountain - Northwest Face
A rarely climbed summit on the north side of the Stein River. The brutal approach has kept most parties away. The summit is Class 3-4 from the south, although the southeast ridge is a pleasant Class 2 scramble. Most of the mountain is made up of very loose scree, and a summit attempt is best done when the gullies are covered in compact snow. The height of 2775 m was measured with a handheld GPS.

Name Notes: The name "Stein" does not come from the German for "stone", but is an adaption of a Nlaka'pamux word, meaning unknown (by me). One transcription reads "Stgayn" as in the alternate title but there are other forms.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
