Moose's Tooth Routes from Southwest
The Mooses Tooth is one of the most infamous peaks in Alaska. It's composed of steep, loose granite walls with crevassed, icefall-prone glaciers stuck to its flanks. The west ridge via the west summit is the standard route, an elaborate climb that is mostly on steep snow and along knife ridges.
