|Summit Cliff (The Highlands)
Bolts to LO. From the top of the second pitch of Northwest Passage, keep going straight up over the bulge. Rap down to the top of Northwest passage and then rap down the rest of that route. I was able to lower in two raps by heading to the LO for Path of the Righteous, but it was a bit awkward to swing into that LO.
straight up form the end of Northwest Passage.
This route is short and protected by 3 bolts, but it packs a punch and is worth doing if you are already at the top of Northwest Passage. The crux is coming over the bulge, but once you do, you will encounter some lichen covered rock and a 12ft hand crack that guards the LO.

a good extension but really filthy! the best thing about it was the exposure... amazing exposure up there!!!...
i climbed it from path of the righteous... from the anchor of that route i moved up and right to a horizontal then hand traversed left to get a good rest on the ledge before busting out the roof... long slings and some back cleaning helped with the rope drag but it was still pretty bad... i lowered back to the path's anchor and rapped to the ground from there...
if it was less dirty and had less rope drag it would get more stars...
