On the right side of the third buttress locate a left-facing dihedral on the upper part of the wall. Follow cracks up the lower buttress to the easy and low angled middle section. These may be part of another route, who can tell on Hallett Peak? Head for a prominent left facing dihedral and follow that for about three pitches then work your way through the towers and gendarmes on the right side of the third buttress. The route showed no signs of an earlier ascent when we did it. We had to clean nut placements and some lichen on the way up. The climbing was continuous and high quality with good pro, one of the better routes that I have done on Hallett Peak....
Gear to 3".

This climb is located to the right of Kor Van Tongren. I was able to discern the line while climbing on Flattop this summer. The dihedral was more obvious from across the way.
