Mt. Adams

 

Description:  North Early winter spires has several routes, but the two most popular are the NW Corner 5.9 and the West Face 5.11a/ 10a  A1. 

 

Aside from the 11a finger crack that is easy to pull through, I personally found the West face felt a tad easier.  The NW Corner has a some committing undercling moves on Pitch 2 that can be odd to protect, especially if you are trying to save your big gear.  Bost routes have some large flake moves that are only protectable by a Camalot #6, but many parties do without these and the moves weren't difficult as you have these massave flakes for hands, but they are committing.
