The first and second pitch out of the notch, ( see approach.), is the easy 5.10 pitch. then the rest of the pitches, about 5 to7 of them, wind around giant features, meandering there way to the summit block. On the summit block is a fun 5.9 face climb. there is something on the top that you can rap off of, I forget what it was.


long 1500 foot 45 degree angle plus snow slope to get to notch between North and Middle Towers. Probable that you will have to do a tool or three movements with an ice tool to make the transition from the snow to the rock. And depending on the conditions you climb it in you may need an ice tool on the route. I didn't bring one on the route.


I only brought five cams up to a #3 and a dozen nuts.
