Description 

This route climbs three new pitches at the very far left side of the main east face, then joins the Central Ramp to finish. Start at the apex of the ramp that runs along the base of the east face, above a lower (loose) buttress. The first ascent climbed this lower buttress (see picture), but loose rock and a broken handhold resulted in one bad lead fall. Repeating this section is not recommended.

P1) Scramble with some exposed 5th class moves to the base of an obvious, steep, left-leaning crack.

P2) Climb the left-leaning crack for 50 feet, then continue on easier terrain to a ledge. 200 feet, 5.10+.

P3) Climb discontinuous cracks up to an exposed face below a roof where Left Sides joins in from the right. Traverse this face on knobs then continue up and left to join the Central Ramp. 180 feet, 5.10a.

Protection 

Standard alpine rock rack.
