Comments: Just south of the tree with the rap anchor there is a funky flake/body-width chimney thing going down to the west that narrows into a fingers/hand crack about halfway down. If you squirm down through the off-width, this goes pretty well, with a few additional holds available on the face on the north side of the crack. Probably cruxier than the actual east face scramble, though. Maybe 5.4-5ish?

Comments: It's possible to downclimb the west face of this in lieu of the rappels, but it's a little weird because doing so makes the downclimb the definite crux of the scramble. Pretty vertical rock on the west face, but there are solid holds the whole way, felt about 5.4-5.6ish to me? Sets you up nicely for a scramble of Onoclea, too. Plus, then you don't have to trust that second threaded rap anchor, which seems a little specious to me (the tat is wrapped around an approximately arm-thick rib of rock).

Comments: Mc kaiser - this morning was my 124th. I know Stefan Griebel (who has the car-to-car speed record on it) has tagged it more than 220 times.

Comments: Here's a link to a post I just put up with some pics of Martha from this morning (4/4/2013): 14ers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php...

With regard to ice conditions, I did it with very dull KTS Steel Kahtoola crampons and a single CAMP Nanotech Corsa axe. There was some ice but not much and always a good stem onto rock or snow if needed to get around it. But, I think conditions are probably changing up there daily at this point.

Comments: The first time I did this route a few weeks ago I had been told that there was some "secret" downclimb to get off the rock but didn't have any beta beyond that, so when it came time to get off the rock the most obvious descent to me ended up being a reverse of the spectacular final arete pitch down to a ledge with two big flakes on it. From there, I walked south maybe 20' on the easy terrain to a low-angle and featured chute (that you can crab-walk down) that deposits you another 30-40' lower o... more >>
