A striking line up the longest buttress at the Cirque. Mostly steep face climbing on large holds, many of which are loose and crumbling. Leading this route might feel like a chossy freesolo FA.Probably best left as a TR after climbing some of the other nearby routes. If TRing - you must build your anchor on the lowest "summit ledge", as a 60M rope will barely reach the top of the 3rd class start from here. Knot the ends!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
