BETA PHOTO: View of Ezy Rider from the notch

Description 

From the notch, climb right leaning flared crack past creaky flakes then up hand crack to the top. Much much easier if you stem to the back wall.

Descend from 2 eyebolts back to notch, or jump across to east summit

Location 

Approach using any of the climbs that get you to the notch between the E and W summits. Ezy Rider is on the E face of the W summit, just left of Spiral Staircase

Protection 

standard rack to 2"

Ah, the old days. Climbed with all three of those first ascent guys back then. Didn't this used to be called "Spread 'em With Style"? If so, I do remember a very, very wide stem that made the final moves much easier--but you needed to have long legs and some descent flexibility.

TR'd this route. Fairly easy if you use the bad side of the other summit to smear. Thin finger crack to solid hand crack

1) If you don't use the back wall (Karabin guide) then this thing is really sandbagged.
2) If you use the back wall you can chimney the whole way up.

IMHO PG-13 rating on lead. If you fall you're going to smack into the back wall because it is so close. On the plus side, the back wall makes it super easy to work the moves, and it is very TRable.
