This climb is sometimes confused and misidentified as "Epic," but that climb is the last one on the East Face and right of Eastside Groove.

Really liked this as a warmup in 2010, a 70m rope and 50' of simulclimbing got me from the dirt to the top.

there is a really nice belay ledge at about 200 feet. That makes this great for multi-pitch practice. The main crack is big, and takes larger gear, camalot 3's and 4's.

Lots of options to the top from that ledge. I went left, out onto the face which was exhilarating and airy. The "walk off" is all the way over on the other side (south end) of the rock and descends the west side.
