In April 2013, alpinists David Lama and Dani Arnold ventured to Alaska where they established a new route, Bird of Prey, on the previously
unclimbed headwall on the east face of the Moose’s Tooth (4,500 feet). The team realized their goal in 17 pitches and were back at their base camp
within 48 hours. “It’s a logical line,” Arnold told Rock and Ice afterwards.
“We tried to climb the direct and easiest line to the top, but it was hard enough!” Lama suggests the grade of 6a (5.10a), M7+, 90-degrees, A2, for Bird of Prey.
