Description 

This is a nice route that protects well. Start at the base of the smooth grey slab, aiming for the diagonal hand crack. Then head left to keep the route clean and avoid the the wildflowers (king's crown) above the hand crack. Belay on the large, tundra flower ledge.


Location 

This route is up McCullough Gulch. Take the standard trail past the first big lake below the Inwood Arete and the North Couloir. Continue past the lake on the trail, this route is located on the cliffs that separate the lower lake from the upper lakes. For the descent, just scramble off to the North.


Protection 

Alpine rack.
