This is the crack that is just right of the "nose." In fact, it's the bottom part of the finish of the aid route. It has stout hands, off-sized, and finally thin fingers. It's burly for sure.
Bit of everything.

I've looked at that line wondering how hard of a climb it would be.

There was chalk on that sucker when I soloed deGaulle's Nose aid route a month or two ago. Looks like it would be pretty tough.

It's 5.10- climbing to a hard move or two on secure locks, but DO NOT try this one in the cold....

Seemed really easy for the grade, compared to other routes in the area. One thin finger lock and a foot smear and you're through the crux. You can load up gear from an OK stance. Great way to finish off the day, worth the very short hike. Getting off is a little interesting. I would recommend against the OW downclimb. There is a way to hop over a small chasm to a flat flake on the side towards the road.

We should have added a summit anchor. Sorry!
