The north side of Steele Mountain is a wild looking place. It far exceeded my expectations. Today, my son and I climbed a route on the north face (Quasi-Moat-O) and had a great time. The rock is pretty crumbly and the moss was still wet from the recent rain. But the setting was fantastic!

After bushwacking up a steep, forested hill, we got our first view of the north side.



The route was done in 4 short pitches.



Wild looking cliffs.

Good job with the photos! I didn't know Steele Mountain was so rugged and steep from that side.

Steele is one of my favorites but I've never seen it from that angle! Wow!

Thanks for exploring the area and revealing it in Lopez's book. The route you did on the adjacent cliff (behind Kevin in the following picture) looks very cool. Nice work.
