1. East Face Routes The East Face of the mountain is home to two extreme Alpine Climbing Routes. The East Face is graded at V 5.9 A1 and was ascended by P.A. Geiser, J.R. Hudson, and A. Gran in 1965. The Wild Thing is graded at VI 5.9 A3 W4 and was ascended by Barry Blanchard, W. Robinson, and P. Arbic in March 1987. The normal route is a Grade II climb that goes up the south slopes directly below the impressive East Face of White Pyramid and was ascended by J.W.A Hickson and E. Feuz Jr. in 1913. The mountain can also be scrambled up the south slopes proper to gain the west ridge.
There is also a new/recent route called "Leftover Rib" on the left side of the face which is described in the 2001 AAJ. It was put up by Raphael Slawinski and Jeff Nazarchuk and is graded V 5.8.
For all routes except the Wild Thing, access is from the Chephren Lake Trail out of the Waterfowl Lakes Campground. Take the trail to the lake, then go around the left side. For the Wild Thing, park at the pullout at the northernmost Waterfowl Lake.
