One powerful and steep crack climb. Located at the bottom of the West Ridge in a high alcove. Scramble up some 4th class to reach basecamp at the base of this route. Start up "Wingshot" and place some good gear before heading left into "Office Girls". Work into a slot (knee-bars), and jam your way up the powerful crack to an obvious undercling. Fight your way past a pin to a good shake before one more hard move must be negotiated. [Voile] you are at the anchors. The routes "Wingshot" and "Blues Power" also end at this anchor. The wall is a little crumbly so only two stars but the climbing is brilliant and the gear is good.
One pin up high and gear to # 3 Friend size. Knee-pads also help.
