Climb easy rock past two bolts to a stance below a shield feature on the right side of the West Wall. Consider skipping these bolts or backcleaning to avoid drag. The climbing to this point is trivial, but the rock is poor. Using drilled pockets and sidepulls, pull a bouldery sequence (crux) to a stance. Continue up using more drilled pockets and arete features through another crux (easier than the first) section to the anchor.The rock on the face is very solid, but seems to stay quite dirty...[more] Browse More Classics in PA

The tree the bottom of the fixed line was tied to has fallen as well. The rope has been cut in the middle and is core-shot near the top. The wooden stairs where the bottom of the rope used to be are getting eroded underneath. This approach really needs some love.
