Viennese Peak - South Face
Located on the Chehalis/Winslow Divide, on the north side of Upper Statlu Lake and just southwest of Nursery Pass. It's an impossible looking black tower on the east ridge of the Mount Clarke massif. It's popular for roped climbing. The standard approach is to hike up trail to Statlu Lake, then up steep bushy switchbacks to a Upper Statlu Lake. From here, gain the Recourse-Viennese col and then head northeast to the base of this pinnacle. All routes are Class 5, except for a Class 4 route on the west ridge.
