The aesthetic South Face towers over the range like a light house guiding you to crack climbing heaven. There is no question why Clyde's South Face is one of North America's 50 classic climbs. Comprised of Quartz Monzonite the cracks and face are very steep and offer great jamming and exposure. Clyde is simply one of the best climbs of its grade in the Sierra.
