This short route is recommended only if you happen to be climbing on Saddle rock and not as a destination in itself. In fact, this can be said of most of the climbs on Saddle rock...

From the saddle of the rock while facing South you will see the North Face of the Southern summit. The route follows an awkward line West (right) of a clean featureless slab. A great variation to this exposed 5.2 climb is a 5.5 option that follows a left angling crack that starts East (left)of the featureless slab and ends East of the summit below a fist crack. Scramble around the crack or tackle it for 10 ft into OW territory.

Descent - Scramble South towards the trail
