This is a reasonable section of rock, with 30' of good climbing. Some less desirable stuff must be climbed to access it, however.
25' more of good climbing is on the area just below and right of this, on the top of Endgame (10a, 1.5-2" crack) for a total of about 55' feet of quality climbing.
This climb ascends the flake and crack that starts on the lower right side of the summit tower on the center of the South Face, and it climbs up the center of that feature to the top.
A set of cams and nuts. A gear or Cordalette-on-boulder belay up top is used. Scramble off to the E/SE and around, or locate the fixed rap anchor on the first sub-summit 60' to the West, and 10' down on the south face of that, as for the aid roof.
