About Hounds Tooth:

Follow instructions on how to get to Deaf Smith. Look up the big steep hill in front of the dead end street. Pick a line with the least amount of scrub oak possible. Hike the hill until you get to the ridge that drops down into the north canyon of Deaf Smith. Hike the ridge (north) through lame scrub oak and steepness. Aim for a big cairn (looks like a mini Ancient Art from way down low its about 5ft. tall)on the ridge. Break the last steep ridge and you will see the Tooth's west face. Full on battle with scrub oak brings you closer to the wall. 2 hour walk.
Nearest town or city: Salt Lake City
Directions: Drive south on Wasatch from Big Cottonwood Canyon. Turn left onto Kings Hill. Count three streets on your left and take the third (golden oaks). Park at the dead end. Don't block anyones driveway or anything stupid like that.
